Carjacking - Arrest: C18-275024

On December 12, 2018, at approximately 5:30 p.m., East District General Patrol units responded to a report of a carjacking that had occurred in the 500 block of London Street.

A 17-year-old female had just parked her vehicle when two suspects approached on foot. One of the suspects, a female, produced a baton while the other suspect, a male, produced a utility knife. The victim was struck with the baton several times before the vehicle’s keys were taken and the vehicle was stolen. The victim did not require medical treatment.

A short time later, the victim’s debit card, which has been inside the stolen vehicle, was fraudulently used at a convenience store in the Dufferin neighbourhood.

On December 13, 2018, at approximately 3:25 a.m., a Central District General Patrol unit observed the stolen vehicle being driven by a female near Toronto Street and St. Matthews. The vehicle immediately fled from police at a high rate of speed and soon after crashed into a tree in the 200 block of Toronto Street.

A female suspect and a male suspect ran from the vehicle in an attempt to escape but were taken into custody nearby. Members of the Major Crimes Unit continued with the investigation.
