On March 9, 2022, at approximately 9:15 a.m., General Patrol officers from the North District responded to a carjacking involving a food delivery driver.

The victim (the food delivery driver) had his running vehicle stolen after making a delivery at a residence in the 400 block of Selkirk Avenue. Upon returning to his vehicle, an unknown female was in the driver's seat, and the victim jumped in to prevent it from being stolen. The suspect suddenly drove away with the victim seated in the rear, subsequently crashing into two parked vehicles.

She then fled from the vehicle, with the victim catching up and taking hold of her until police arrived. The victim was assaulted while waiting for police. He was treated for minor injuries.

Robbery – Arrests: C22-49305

On March 9, 2022, at approximately 2:00 p.m., General Patrol members responded to a mall in the 1400 block of Portage Avenue for a report of two males verbally threatening security and patrons. The two had then approached a vehicle and robbed the occupants at gunpoint with a pair of firearms that were produced.

Mall security contacted 911 and directed responding officers to the two suspects. Both attempted to flee but were engaged by police in a foot pursuit.

While being pursued, one male was observed to discard a loaded gun (which was later recovered). The male was taken into custody in the 1500 block of St. Matthews Avenue. The firearm was found to be a loaded 9mm handgun with a 30-round magazine and a tampered serial number. The other male was taken into custody near St. Matthews Avenue and Milt Stegall Drive, where he was found to possess a loaded 9mm handgun.

Members of the Major Crimes Unit continued with the investigation.

It is believed that the two suspects, who were not known to any of their victims, had attended the mall and began displaying unusual behaviour that concerned store staff. Security was contacted, and the two were asked to leave, at which time they made threats to the guards. The two then approached a vehicle parked outside the mall and produced firearms, demanding property from the three occupants. They received an undisclosed amount of cash and fled.
