Toronto police say two suspects have been charged after a vehicle took off from an officer conducting traffic enforcement in Scarborough, which led to a pursuit and several cars being damaged.

A Toronto police spokesperson told Global News the pursuit began in the Markham Road and Eglinton Avenue East area before 6:20 p.m. on Tuesday.

It wasn’t clear Tuesday evening why the officer attempted to pull over the vehicle or the route the vehicle took after leaving.

Police said officers eventually caught up to the suspects’ vehicle in the McCowan and Kingston roads area.
