Two Brampton residents are facing numerous robbery and firearms charges and a third man is being hunted by police in the wake of a series of carjackings and retail robberies over the past two weeks.

Peel Regional Police Central Robbery Bureau investigators, along with York, Toronto and OPP officers, charged a 19-year-old man and a 17-year-old youth today in connection with the violent incidents.

Police say the charges stem from five retail robberies and four carjackings in Brampton, a retail robbery in Toronto, another in Caledon and one other in Vaughan, all taking place between July 23 and Aug. 4.

During all of the incidents, the culprits were armed with a knife and imitation firearm, police say.

A third suspect involved in two of the robberies is still being sought by police. 

Police executed search warrants at two Brampton homes, where several items were seized.

“Commercial robberies and carjackings are incredibly violent crimes which carry deep and long-lasting impacts on those targeted,” said Nick Milinovich, Peel police deputy chief of investigative and emergency services.

Sahibdeep Singh, 19, of Brampton is charged with 12 counts of robbery, eight counts use imitation firearm, two counts aggravated assault and 12 counts disguise with intent. He’s also charged with fail to comply with release order, which he was under at the time of his arrest for separate robbery-related charges in 2020.

A 17-year-old youth, also of Brampton, is facing the same number of robbery, use imitation firearm, disguise with intent and aggravated assault charges. He’s also facing robbery-related charges stemming from a robbery this past April.

Both are being held for bail hearings.
