Men wanted in An­nex knife­point rob­bery

Midtown Post - - News - — MP

So far this year, as­saults have been on the rise in neigh­bour­hoods span­ning 53 Di­vi­sion, with a to­tal of 571 recorded so far this year. A jar­ring in­ci­dent took place this past June.

At 5:30 a.m. on June 18, four male sus­pects as­saulted and robbed two male vic­tims, aged 18 and 19, in a lo­ca­tion near Bloor Street and Spad­ina Av­enue. One of the sus­pects pulled out a knife dur­ing the as­sault.

The four sus­pects stole the vic­tims’ pos­ses­sions, which in­cluded a 1970s Rolex Su­perla­tive Sub­mariner Chronome­ter watch in ad­di­tion to a cell­phone. It is al­leged that the sus­pects threw the vic­tims to the ground and held them at knife­point.

The sus­pects were caught on se­cu­rity cam­era footage, and they ap­pear to be in their twen­ties. Af­ter the al­leged in­ci­dent, they fled the scene in a grey Volk­swa­gen Jetta.

Allyson Douglas-Cook, com­mu­ni­ca­tions of­fi­cer with the Toronto Po­lice Ser­vice, said that the to­tal value of prop­erty stolen is un­known, and the sus­pects have yet to be iden­ti­fied.

“There is no sum­mary of the to­tal value of the prop­erty which was stolen [a watch and a cell­phone is what the re­port in­di­cates],” Douglas-Cook said.

“The sus­pects have not yet been iden­ti­fied, there­fore we do not have any fur­ther de­tails about them or pos­si­ble crim­i­nal his­tory.”
