Five Mississauga teens charged in Brampton carjacking

Five Mississauga teens are facing charges in connection with an armed carjacking last Friday night in which the victim had his vehicle taken from him at gunpoint in the parking lot of a Brampton plaza.

Those charged include two boys aged 15 and 16 and three girls, one of whom is 15 and the other two 16, Peel Regional Police said in a news release on Tuesday.

According to robbery investigators, a man was inside his 2023 Dodge Charger at the Vodden Street East/Kennedy Road North plaza at about 10:30 p.m. on Jan. 26 when he was approached by two young males.

One of the culprits had a handgun, police say, and the pair “forcibly removed the victim from the vehicle and fled the area in the victim’s vehicle.”

The man did not suffer any physical injuries, police said.

Robbery investigators, with help from the Peel police tactical unit, subsequently located the occupied stolen vehicle in Mississauga and arrested five people.

Police say officers also recovered an imitation firearm.

Two boys, one 15 and the other 16, both of Mississauga, are charged with:

  • robbery with firearm
  • point firearm
  • possession of property obtained by crime
  • fail to comply with release order

They were both held for bail hearings, police said.

Three girls, one 15 and the other two 16, all of Mississauga, are each charged with possession of property obtained by crime.

They were released from custody on an undertaking.

Under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, none of those charged can be identified.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact investigators at 905-453-2121, ext. 3410, or Peel Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
