An investigation into a man found unconscious near Park Road and Malaga Road in the early hours Wednesday morning has determined the man had a medical episode and no foul play is suspected.

The victim was found around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday and was taken to a trauma centre. An update into the man’s condition has not yet been provided.

The plaza at Park and Malaga roads has been the site of several major crimes lately. On December 4, Teil-lyn Cook, 19 was stabbed in the chest in front of Fox and the Goose sports bar inside the plaza. She died December 9, becoming Durham Region’s 15th and final murder victim of 2022. Maliek Morgan, 24 of Pickering, has since been charged with second-degree murder in that case.

Weeks later on January 10, the plaza was the site of a robbery after an unidentified trio targeted the Lakeview Pharmacy in the plaza. The three made off with narcotic drugs and fled the scene, leaving the workers unharmed.
