Two separate knifepoint robberies that happened within minutes of each other on the same path in Mississauga Thursday evening have Peel Regional Police concerned for the safety of residents.

In both cases, the women who were targeted told police they were walking outside on a pathway near South Common Library, in The Collegeway and South Millway area, between 6 and 6:40 p.m. when they were approached by two men.

The culprits then robbed the women of personal belongings at knifepoint.

Neither victim was physically harmed during the robberies.

There are three varying suspect descriptions:

  • Suspect 1: Male, dark-skinned, slim build, 5’6”-5’9” and wearing a black sweater with the hood up.

  • Suspect 3: Male, dark-skinned, brown eyes, between the ages of 14-18, black pants, black puffy jacket and a blue surgical mask.
