Police are searching for three suspects after a victim was reportedly robbed at a Brampton bank machine by suspects wielding a machete.
Peel police report that on Monday, Nov. 27 at approximately 12:04 a.m., the victim was using a bank machine in a plaza in the Bramalea Road and Sandalwood Parkway area when he was approached by two males.
Police say two suspects–one armed with a machete and the other with a knife–approached the victim and demanded money.
Police say the suspects left on foot with the victim’s cash and met with a third suspect, believed to be keeping watch, a short distance away.
According to police, the three suspects then continued eastbound on Sandalwood Parkway. They were last seen on Applegrove Court. Police say eyewitness accounts indicate that the suspects were in the fast food restaurant in that plaza prior to the incident.
The first suspect is described as 18 or 19-year-old black male who is about 5’6” with a slim build. He was last seen wearing a black ski mask, a blue jacket with orange trim, a black hooded sweater and dark pants. Police say he was seen concealing the machete in a dark beige canvas style bag.
The second suspect is described as a 17 or 18-year-old black male of average height with a medium build. He was last seen wearing a black jacket, a grey hoodie, a black toque and dark jeans.
The third suspect is described as a black male between 18 and 20 years of age who is approximately 6’2” with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a dark bomber-style hooded jacket, a white t-shirt with a black smiley face logo, black pants and white shoes.
Police are asking anyone with surveillance footage or dashboard camera footage of the area around the time of the robbery or any other information about the identity of the suspects or incident to call investigators of 21 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau at (905) 453-2121, ext. 2133.
