Peel police shooting in Brampton

One man has been charged and another is being sought by police in connection with a violent home invasion at a high-rise apartment building in the heart of Mississauga earlier this year.

Peel Regional Police say a man they describe as having “a history of armed robbery and failing to comply with release orders” was arrested again earlier this week and charged in relation to a March 6 home invasion in which two people were robbed and terrorized at gunpoint inside their Hurontario St./Eglinton Ave. apartment.

Robbery investigators say two men burst into the apartment and immediately demanded cash and valuables from the two residents.

One of the intruders was armed with a gun and wore a disguise, police say.

The victims were forced to lie on the ground while the intruders ransacked the apartment, stealing cash and other items.

The residents were not physically harmed, police say.

Musa Omar-Godane, 25, of Mississauga, is charged with robbery, using an imitation firearm, wearing a disguise and failing to comply with a release order.

At the time of his arrest, Omar-Godane was on several release conditions including that he not possess weapons. Additionally, he was subject to electronic GPS monitoring, police say.

Police did not provide any details of the second person they’re seeking.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 905-453-2121, ext. 3410, or Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
