Images of men wanted in two violent robberies have been released, with police asking for help identifying the pair.
Back on the afternoon of Thursday July 30, around 3:00 p.m., officers were called to a McDonald’s parking lot at 5453 Dundas Street West after a 31 year old man had been robbed.
The victim told police he had put an ad on Kijiji to sell his Nike Air Jordan shoes and had arranged to meet the buyer at that location.
He indicated he was met by 2 men who examined the shoes, and then pulled out metal batons and beat him, before stealing the shoes.
The first suspect has been described as 18 years old, 6′-6’2″, with a skinny build, large lower lip, and distinct gap between front upper teeth. He was wearing a white bucket cap with dark-blue rim, red T-shirt, black or navy-blue Adidas sweatpants with three stripes down the entire pant leg, white socks, and dark running shoes with white soles.
The second suspect has been described as 18 years old, 6′, also with a skinny build and short black curly hair. He was wearing a blue long-sleeved shirt, buttoned up with white buttons, a white T-shirt with a multi-colored image, light-grey Roots sweatpants with a Roots logo on the upper left thigh, and white running shoes with white soles.
Police also believe the same men were involved in a stabbing at the Petro Canada station at 3380 Dixie Road in Mississauga.
The men are considered to be armed and dangerous. You’re asked to call 9-1-1 if they are spotted.
