Two young men who built a mysterious tunnel in Toronto had no criminal intent, police said Monday. They just wanted a man cave.
Const. Victor Kwong said tips from the public helped them identify the two men in their 20s responsible for building the underground chamber near a Pan Am Games venue. News of the tunnel’s discovery set off a social media frenzy, with theories of its purpose ranging from zombie hideouts to affordable housing.
“The minute they were found they were apologetic,” Kwong said.
He said there is no connection to this summer’s Pan Am Games, or to York University, which is also near the site where the tunnel was found.
