Three Mississauga, Brampton Teenagers Arrested for Armed Attempted Carjacking
Three teenagers from Mississauga and Brampton have been arrested for alleged armed attempted carjacking in Rexdale. The incident took place early Sunday morning and the three 15-year-old boys unsuccessfully tried to take a man’s keys as they pulled him out of his car. They were later arrested and charged.
Police responded to a report of a person with a gun at around 3:20 a.m. in the area of Rexdale and Humberwood boulevards. It was reported that three masked boys approached the victim as he entered his parked vehicle and demanded his keys. One of the boys took out a handgun as they pulled the victim out of his car and struck him over the head with the gun. They were unable to grab his keys, so they took off with some cash and lottery tickets.
Officers from 23 Division searched the area and were able to locate the three suspects. They were taken into custody in connection with the alleged robbery. They are all 15 years old and cannot be identified as per the Youth Criminal Justice Act. They have been charged with robbery with a firearm, conspiracy to commit and indictable offense, and disguise with intent.
