Carjacking/Home Invasions: Arrests – C20-164554

On July 13, 2020, at approximately 3:25 p.m., a 53-year-old man and his 17-year-old daughter were walking to their vehicle near Rue Despins and Rue Jeanne d’Arc when they were confronted and robbed of their vehicle. During the robbery, a suspect threatened to shoot the male victim and while fleeing, the stolen vehicle collided with another car.

At approximately 5:00 p.m., the suspects attended a residential building in the 400 block of Maryland Street, where they committed two home invasions to neighbouring suites. Three male victims, aged between 27 and 54 years old, were robbed at gunpoint. While fleeing, the stolen vehicle collided with a nearby car, a construction loader and a garage.

As the suspects fled the area, the stolen vehicle passed a cruiser car and subsequently accelerated at a high rate of speed in an attempt to elude police. The vehicle was abandoned in a nearby back lane, and two suspects were taken into custody after a foot pursuit.

A search of the stolen vehicle and the suspects resulted in the seizure of several items including:

- A sawed-off .22 calibre rifle
- A paintball gun
- Two knives

The suspect observed operating the stolen vehicle is believed to have been impaired by a drug. It is also believed that the suspects were unknown to the victims.
