A road rage dis­pute in the Du­plex Av­enue and Eglin­ton Av­enue West area has led to the ar­rest of a 58-year-old male sus­pect. On April 19, at ap­prox­i­mately 5:32 p.m., a male sus­pect walk­ing on the side­walk and a 35-year-old fe­male vic­tim in her car got into an ar­gu­ment. The sus­pect al­legedly kicked the vic­tim’s car, and when she ex­ited her car to speak with him, she was struck mul­ti­ple times in the face. Sev­eral cit­i­zens, along with an off-duty Toronto Po­lice Ser­vice (TPS) of­fi­cer, were able to end the as­sault and place the sus­pect un­der ar­rest. TPS was called to the scene, and the sus­pect was later charged with as­sault and mis­chief.

A dan­ger­ous driv­ing in­ci­dent in the An­nex has the Toronto Po­lice Ser­vice (TPS) look­ing for wit­nesses. On April 10, at about 3 p.m., TPS re­ceived a call in the St. Ge­orge Street and Col­lege Street area. It is al­leged that a fe­male sus­pect fol­lowed a fe­male vic­tim, 29, in a ve­hi­cle, mounted the curb and yelled at her. Nu­mer­ous peo­ple filmed the in­ci­dent with their cell­phones. The sus­pect then fol­lowed the 29-yearold vic­tim un­til she sought refuge in a store on Col­lege Street. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should call TPS.

Two North York rob­beries have led to the ar­rest of two 25-year-old male sus­pects and a 33-year-old fe­male sus­pect from Toronto. On March 27, at 6:30 p.m., two male sus­pects wear­ing masks were driven to a con­ve­nience store in the Wil­low­dale Av­enue south of Finch Av­enue East area. They en­tered the store, armed with a ri­fle and de­manded cash and cig­a­rettes be­fore they fled in a car. Days later, on March 30 at 10:40 p.m., two masked male sus­pects ap­proached a male vic­tim in the park­ing lot of a bank in the Shep­pard Av­enue East and Wil­low­dale Av­enue area. The sus­pects pointed an as­sault ri­fle at the vic­tim and made a de­mand for cash and valu­ables. When the sus­pects then ap­proached a 29-year-old woman nearby, de­mand­ing her jacket and cell­phone, the male vic­tim ran. One of the sus­pects fired ap­prox­i­mately seven rounds from a ri­fle at the male vic­tim, who was not struck by any of the bul­lets. In re­gard to both in­ci­dents, the Toronto Po­lice Ser­vice (TPS) ar­rested and charged the two male sus­pects on April 4, and the fe­male sus­pect was ap­pre­hended April 5. A SKS ri­fle was re­cov­ered dur­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

A 39-year-old male sus­pect has been charged for the sex­ual as­sault of three fe­male vic­tims trav­el­ling on the Uni­ver­sity and Yonge sub­way line. On April 4, at 7:45 a.m., a fe­male vic­tim was trav­el­ling north­bound from Os­goode sub­way sta­tion to Shep­pard West sta­tion when a male sus­pect sat down, leav­ing one seat be­tween him­self and the vic­tim. It is al­leged that he placed a coat be­tween the two seats, ex­tended his arm and sex­u­ally as­saulted her. On April 13, at 9:15 a.m., po­lice be­lieve the same sus­pect sex­u­ally as­saulted an­other fe­male vic­tim at the Shep­pard West sub­way sta­tion. On April 16, at 6:55 a.m., the same sus­pect has been ac­cused of sex­u­ally as­sault­ing a third fe­male vic­tim who boarded the south­bound train at St. Ge­orge sub­way sta­tion. His photo has been posted on the Toronto Po­lice Ser­vice web­site. Po­lice be­lieve there are more vic­tims.
