Men wanted in Annex knifepoint robbery
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.”
