Three Brampton men are facing charges after an armed car-jacking Saturday night.
Police say the victims were driving near Williams Parkway and Elbern Markell Drive in Brampton about 8 p.m. when their car was intentionally struck from behind by an SUV. Fearing for their safety, they fled the scene to a nearby residence but were followed by four men, with at least one man carrying a firearm.
The suspects then stole the victim’s car and quantity of iPhones, Apple computers and other electronics and left the residence in the SUV, which police later discovered was stolen.
Investigators from Peel Regional Police’s Central Robbery Bureau, Toronto Police’s 22 Division Criminal Investigations Bureau and the Strategic Tactical Enforcement Patrol unit worked collaboratively and were able to locate both stolen vehicles in Toronto and two of the suspects, who were still driving the vehicles.
A third suspect was arrested later in Brampton. The fourth suspect is still at large.
“This was a very fluid investigation that required officers to cross jurisdictional boundaries, which ultimately led them to locate, arrest and bring the suspects before the courts,” said Nick Milinovich, Deputy Chief of Investigative and Emergency Services for Peel Police. “Their coordinated efforts have without a doubt contributed to the safety and well-being of the communities we protect”.
Simranjeet Narang, 29, was charged with robbery, while Davinder Mann, 36, was charged with Robbery, Possession of Stolen Property x2, and two counts of Fail to Comply with Release Order. Aadish Sharma, 27, was charged with Robbery, Possession of Stolen Property x2 and Fail to Comply with Undertaking.
Investigators are urging the fourth suspect to contact a lawyer and turn himself in.
The stolen electronics, which have been disabled and will not be usable by potential purchasers, have not been recovered.
