Police are currently on the lookout for five young males who are being sought in connection with a robbery and vandalism investigation in east Toronto.
In a statement, Toronto Police Service (TPS) said on Sept. 1, just before 5 a.m., they responded to three separate calls in the area. According to investigators, a group of young males confronted a jogger on Dingwall Avenue, physically assaulted him, and demanded that he surrender his belongings.
Subsequently, the individuals reportedly proceeded westward on Dingwall Avenue and then targeted a cyclist at the intersection of Carlaw and Wroxeter avenues, forcibly taking his bicycle.
Following that, the young individuals headed eastward on Bain Avenue from Pape Avenue and entered a UPS delivery truck, obstructing the driver from completing his delivery, according to TPS.
