Toronto police say they have arrested another teenager in connection with a carjacking in the city’s northwest end last week.

Police responded to a carjacking robbery on May 11 in the area of Millwick Drive and Islington Avenue.

The victim was standing outside of his Jeep Wrangler in a parking lot, police said. Three males approached him and one pulled out a handgun and demanded the keys.

Police said the keys were inside the Jeep and the armed suspect got into the vehicle and drove away. As he drove away, the Jeep struck a light pole in the parking lot and crashed as he turned onto the street, police said.
