Police have released security camera images of two men wanted in connection with an assault and robbery in Toronto’s Weston neighbourhood.
On Nov. 26, two men were playing loud music on a TTC bus travelling south on Jane Street towards Lawrence Avenue. When a third male passenger asked them to lower the volume of the music, the two men allegedly “became very agitated and began to yell and swear.”
Investigators say the two suspects followed the man off the bus and attacked and robbed him a short distance away. The suspects then fled on foot.
On Sunday, police released security camera images of the two suspects and are looking for the public’s help in identifying and locating the men.
The first suspect is described as a 5-7 man between 18 and 25 years old, with a medium build and blonde and brown hair. He was last seen wearing a black Blue Jays baseball cap.
The second suspect is described as a 5-7 male between 18 and 25 years old with a thin build, and short, black hair. He was last seen wearing a black Moose-Knuckle jacket with a fur hood.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-1200 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
