Police said a repairman was working on a phone line in a Ross Avenue lane, when a man with a handgun demanded his keys. The armed man and a second suspect fled in the victim’s vehicle.
Police spotted the stolen car near Selkirk Avenue and McGregor Street, and after following for a few blocks, it was stopped without incident.
A replica handgun was seized from one of the suspects, and police found that the stolen vehicle had also been involved in a nearby hit and run accident.
Police said the same suspects were responsible for pointing a firearm at a driver near Notre Dame Avenue and Toronto Street earlier that evening. They also allegedly pointed a firearm at a 14-year-old on Winnipeg Avenue and stole his backpack and personal belongings.
None of the victims reported injuries.
