Toronto police are investigating after the latest in a string of car thefts in the city.
Police said that two people pulled up in separate cars, one allegedly armed with a handgun. The incident is reported to have taken place around 4:27 p.m.
No one was injured and officers are searching the area, Toronto police said.
The carjacking is the latest in a series of incidents across the city.
On Tuesday night, three men attempted to carjack a women’s vehicle in a Walmart parking lot in Rexdale, only for a passerby to come to her aid and hold one of the suspects captive until police arrived.
Meanwhile, Toronto Maple Leafs star Mitch Marner had his high-end car stolen at gunpoint outside a cinema in Etobicoke on Monday night. At a press conference held following the theft of Marner’s vehicle, police said they had investigated at least 60 carjacking incidents in 2022 alone.
Police said that marks a significant increase over 2021, when 59 incidents were reported in the entire calendar year.
