Police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a woman and two men wanted in connection with two carjackings in Toronto.
Toronto police said on Friday, officers received a report of a person with a gun in the Meadowvale Road and Sheppard Avenue East area.
Police said a 35-year-old man was sitting in his vehicle in a parking lot when three suspects asked him if he had any booster cables that they could borrow.
Officers said the victim did not have the cables, but offered to drive the suspects to a nearby location.
According to police, they got into his vehicle.
That is when one of the suspects allegedly produced a handgun and demanded the keys from the victim.
“The victim go out of his vehicle and fled the area with his vehicle keys,” a news release read.
Police said the three suspects then fled the area on foot.
