York Regional Police are on the lookout for two men, following the robbery of a Tim Horton’s in Markham.
Investigators say the pair entered the coffee shop in the area of Steeles Avenue East and Don Mills Road just after midnight on Friday and jumped over the front counter.
One of the suspects then assaulted a female employee and demanded cash from the till, while the other stood by, pointing a handgun at employees.
A sum of cash was then handed over and the suspects fled the scene in a waiting silver Honda Civic, headed south on Don Mills Road.
The first suspect is described as a white male, 6′ 1” tall with a muscular build.
He was wearing a blue hoodie, black pants, black shoes, and a white mask over his face at the time.
The other is described as a black male who is around 5′ 10” tall with a thin build.
He was wearing a blue jacket with green sleeves, blue running shoes, and a white scarf over his face.
Police say they believe the same suspects were responsible for a robbery in Barrie earlier in the night.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the York Regional Police Hold-Up Unit at 1-866-876-5423, ext. 6631, or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
Coincidentally, Friday marks National Donut Day, something which was not lost on York Regional Police.
