Investigators from the Central Robbery Bureau, with assistance from officers from 22 Division and ESS, have arrested three men for the carjacking of a delivery driver in the City of Brampton.

The victim reported that he was delivering packages when he was accosted by a man and punched. Following the assault, the man entered the victim’s vehicle and attempted to steal it.
