Street Robbery Spree in Milton (Active)
Halton Regional Police are actively looking for four suspects in a rash of street robberies that have occurred this evening in the Town of Milton. The first robbery occurred around 4:30 pm, the second at 5:00 pm, the third at 5:30 pm and the most recent at 6:00 p.m.
This group of culprits are all described as males, in their late teens and early 20's, light brown skin, one wearing a green windbreaker, another with a blue and white basketball jersey with a Blue Jays ball cap and khaki shorts and one with scruffy facial hair. One of the suspects is described as tall, being between 6'2 and 6'4.
The victims in these four incidents have been mainly other teens and young adults who were robbed of their cell phones, money, watches and backpacks. One set of victims was a father and son. Police are concerned about this group as their crimes are brazen; taking place in busy commercial and public parking lots in broad daylight. They are believed to be travelling around in a white 2016 Ford Fusion.
The suspects are considered to be armed and dangerous. If seen, the public should not approach the group, but call 911 from a safe distance.
This situation is fluid and updates will be issued in a timely fashion.
