Toronto police is asking for the public’s help in identifying a man and a woman wanted in a series of pickpocket-style thefts at restaurants in the downtown core, last month.

Police allege that on April 17th at around 6:50 p.m., the two suspects walked into a restaurant in the Bremner Boulevard and York Street area.

The suspects then allegedly walked towards the bar area, at which point the man hid his hand by placing his jacket over it, and stole a wallet from an unsuspecting person.

Police said the man and woman then left the restaurant.
