Two car crash victims robbed in Toronto as they waited for paramedics

TORONTO – Police in Toronto are investigating a pair of robberies from people after they were injured in collisions.

Investigators say a man was robbed on Wednesday after being struck by a car in Toronto’s east end (at the Lawrence and Birchmount area).

Witnesses say that as the victim lay bleeding on the street waiting for paramedics, a woman walked by and stole the rolls of coins he had been carrying.

Last Saturday, a cyclist was struck by a car (at Oxford Street and Spadina Avenue) and police say a man grabbed her bag and rummaged through it while she was semi-conscious.

Police say the man then took the victim’s cellphone and fled the area.

A 36-year-old man is facing a theft charge in Saturday’s incident.
