Two men have been charged with robbery following a carjacking incident in Mississauga last year, according to Peel Regional Police.

On Oct. 19 at around 5:40 p.m. police say the victim was operating his vehicle in a plaza parking lot in the area of Derry Road East and Goreway Drive.

As the victim parked and began to exit his vehicle, police say he was confronted by two suspects who demanded his keys.

Police said the suspects then forcefully removed the vehicle keys from the victim’s pocket, entered the vehicle and fled the area. Investigators say the victim didn’t sustain any physical injuries as a result of this incident.

A few days later, on Oct. 22, just before 2 p.m., members of the Belleville Police Service located the victim’s vehicle and arrested two occupants for possession of property obtained by crime.
