Richmond Hill Post - - Crime -

York Re­gional Po­lice is cur­rently seek­ing the pub­lic’s as­sis­tance in iden­ti­fy­ing a sus­pect in­volved in a vi­o­lent rob­bery at a gas sta­tion in the town of Rich­mond Hill on Sept. 21.

A 34-year-old male vic­tim sus­tained se­ri­ous in­juries after an as­sault that oc­curred shortly be­fore 1:30 p.m. that day. In­ves­ti­ga­tors be­lieve the vic­tim had posted an ad­ver­tise­ment for a pair of iPhones on­line and ar­ranged to meet with the sus­pect, be­lieved to be a prospec­tive buyer, at the gas sta­tion.

When the sus­pect ar­rived, he as­saulted the vic­tim and pro­ceeded to steal the mo­bile phones be­fore flee­ing the scene. The vic­tim was then taken to hos­pi­tal with se­ri­ous in­juries.

York Re­gional Po­lice has posted a de­tailed de­scrip­tion on its web­site, along with a link to a video that cap­tured the in­ci­dent. The po­lice urge any­one with in­for­ma­tion con­cern­ing this crime to come for­ward.
