A second man has been charge in connection with a carjacking in Toronto which occurred in February, police say.
Toronto police said on Feb. 11, officers received a report of a carjacking in the Weston Road and Sheppard Avenue West area.
Police said the victim was driving around with a friend when they stopped in a parking lot.
Officers said two male suspects got into the backseat for a “pre-arranged meeting.”
According to police, one suspect produced a handgun and demanded the victim’s property.
“The suspects then ordered the victim and his friend to get out of the car,” police alleged in a news release. “The victims exited and the two suspects drove away from the scene in the victim’s car.”
Police said on June 16, officers executed a search warrant at a suspect’s home, and took a man into custody.
Officers said “items of evidentiary value” in relation to the robbery were allegedly found during the search.
According to police, 31-year-old Duong Dai Nguyen from Mississauga was arrested and charged with robbery with a firearm, theft of a motor vehicle and failing to comply with probation.
He appeared in court in June.
