Rohinie Bisesar, 40, is wanted on an attempted murder charge after allegedly stabbing a woman at a Toronto drugstore.

From business woman to armed and dangerous.

A highly regarded Ontario financier is wanted on suspicion of the unprovoked stabbing of a stranger at a drugstore Friday.

Rohinie Bisesar is sought on an attempted murder charge after Toronto authorities identified the 40-year-old as the assailant in a 3 p.m. attack that critically wounded the victim.

The victim, who was on the phone when she was stabbed in the chest, managed to find help inside the Shoppers Drug Mart in the city’s PATH system, City News reported.

Surveillance footage captured of Bisesar the day of the incident shows her wearing professional attire and toting an armful of shopping bags.

“We believe (Bisesar) to be armed, violent and dangerous based on what we’ve seen,” Toronto Constable David Hopkinson said.

The victim is in critical condition after being stabbed at this drug store in the city’s underground PATH system while talking on her phone, authorities said.

That description is a far cry from how her friends knew her.

“The person I know is a very calm person, very gentle person,” Andris Pone told City News, urging Bisesar to turn herself in.

Bisesar has ties to the city’s business district, but police would not say how. She has nearly 10 years of finance experience, according to her LinkedIn page.

An associate professor at York University endorsed Bisesar in 2010, noting her “warmth and interpersonal skills.” She has an MBA from the Toronto University .

Toronto’s PATH is an 18-mile network of pedestrian tunnels beneath the city’s Downtown neighborhood.
