The investigation into an armed hold-up and robbery at a party in Toronto has resulted in six arrests including suspects from Mississauga and Brampton.

Back on May 19, 2022, the victim and their friend were invited to a party near Spadina Ave. and Fort York Blvd. in Downtown Toronto early in the morning.

On arrival at the home, multiple men and women confronted the victim. Several suspects pulled guns on the victims and demanded their belongings, Toronto Police say.

Next, the group attacked the victim and stole his jewellery, cell phones, car keys and cash. The group then zip-tied the victim and forced him outside and into a car.

Some of the group drove the victim away from the scene. Others got into the victim’s car and also drove away. The victim’s friend was left behind at the home and called the police.

Meanwhile, the victim was able to break away from the suspects. He managed to get out of the car and was later picked up along Hwy. 401 by OPP officers.

Later, the OPP tracked down the victim’s car and arrested a man in it. The OPP alleges they found items of “evidentiary value” in a later raid.

Later on May 19, police arrested Believe David Kashala, 25 of Brampton on five charges including robbery, car theft, kidnapping and forcible confinement. Kashala later appeared in court on May 20.

However, police continued to search for other suspects in the robbery.

Months later on July 4, police spotted a suspect riding in a car driven by another man. They pulled the car over and arrested both suspects. They claim they found two pistols in the car.

Sharmarke Farah, 25 of Mississauga, was then charged with 19 offences including; armed robbery, kidnapping, forcible confinement, car theft, extortion and numerous firearm offences.

Mohamed Abdulle, 30 of Toronto, was charged with 17 offences; including six counts of possession of a firearm contrary to prohibition, driving while prohibited and several other firearm charges Both Abdulle and Farah appeared in a Toronto courtroom on July 5.

After the arrest of Abdulle and Farah, police followed up with another raid, which resulted in another arrest. Suweida Abdulle, 24 of Toronto, was charged with eight offences including robbery, car theft, kidnapping and forcible confinement. She also appeared in court the next day.

The investigation continued and linked Mohamed Abdulle to the original kidnapping and robbery. While he was still in custody, he was additionally charged with robbery, car theft, kidnapping and forcible confinement on Nov. 16.

By this time, police identified a second woman they believed was involved in the kidnapping, but could not find her. They issued an arrest warrant for her. On Jan. 12, the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) arrested Lauren Finisterre, 23 of no fixed address, for robbery, car theft, kidnapping and forcible confinement.

Finally, there was one last suspect outstanding. However, while they had identified a suspect they could not track him down either. They issued a warrant for his arrest as well.

On March 8, police realized he was already in custody on other charges. Deon Darkwa, 19 of Toronto, was then charged with eight offences including robbery, car theft, kidnapping and forcible confinement.
