Mississauga man charged in connection with kidnapping and robbery incident
A Mississauga man is facing charges following an alleged express kidnapping in Toronto.
He is one of six suspects wanted in connection with the incident. Police have also arrested two other men and a woman, and two suspects are still outstanding.
Toronto police say that on Sunday, Nov. 17, 2019, officers began an investigation into an alleged abduction in the St. George Street and Willcocks Street area that had occurred the night before.
It is alleged that a 21-year-old man was walking down the street when he was approached from behind by four individuals. According to police, one of the suspects brandished a conducted energy weapon and the victim was choked and robbed of personal items before being taken to a nearby bank machine to withdraw money.
Police say he was then forced into a cab and taken to a motel in the city’s east end and was held until he raised his credit limit.
Police say his bank account was emptied and he was released.
On Tuesday, Dec. 3, 20-year-old Mississauga man Adisoon Admoon was arrested at a home in Toronto.
He is charged with kidnapping for ransom or service, forcible confinement, robbery with violence, assault by choking and using a credit card obtained by crime.
He is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Still outstanding are Arthur McLean, 19, of Toronto, and a sixth suspect described as a black man between 20-25 who is 6’ with a skinny build.
The outstanding suspects are considered armed and violent. Police are asking anyone who sees them to avoid approaching them and to call 9-1-1 immediately.
Police believe there may be other victims.
Photos of the suspects can be found here.
