A pair of young Brampton men are each facing attempted murder charges in relation to what police say was a drive-by crossbow attack.
Last Friday, as Peel Regional Police’s 21 Division Criminal Investigations Bureau has established, the two victims were driving in the area of Airport Road and Triple Crown Drive. A vehicle pulled up alongside them. The police allege that the occupants of the vehicle then fired a crossbow at the victims, with the arrow narrowly missing them and lodging itself within the vehicle.
The suspects then fled the area in their vehicle.
Investigators identified the two males responsible. A search warrant was conducted at their residence, where the crossbow and other evidence was located.’
