An 18 year-old male is facing charges after an incident yesterday (Monday) in which a 38 year-old victim was robbed of personal items.
Police were dispatched to the 1800 block of Osler Street on Monday, June 13, 2022 at about 2:40 p.m. after receiving a complaint of a robbery. Preliminary investigation indicated a male suspect had approached the victim who was sitting on a step and allegedly assaulted the victim, before taking some of his belongings and leaving the area on foot. Investigating officers were able to get a suspect description, as well as some video that showed the suspect. That information was shared with other officers and, shortly after, two other patrol members radioed that they had located a male who matched the suspect description, in Victoria Park. The male was taken into custody without incident and further investigation led to a charge against him.
