Two men are facing charges in connection with a number of alleged offences committed in Mississauga, including possession of stolen property, robbery, assault with a weapon, and dangerous driving.
Peel police say that around 7:15 am on Jan. 15, 2021, patrol officers investigated a reportedly stolen vehicle in the Dundas Street East and Coram Crescent area. Police allege the vehicle fled from officers and was eventually located unoccupied shortly after. Police say that both suspects fled on foot and were located in the Cawthra Road and Eastgate Parkway area before allegedly “violently forcing civilians out of their vehicle.”
Police say the suspects attempted to flee, striking an officer and causing minor injuries. Police allege that officers were able to arrest one of the suspects, while the other managed to escape in the stolen vehicle, striking police and civilian vehicles in the process.
Police charged Christopher Noel, a 35-year-old man, with multiple offences, including possession of property obtained by crime, fleeing from police, robbery, assault and more.
On Jan. 27, 2021, investigators located the second suspect and arrested him without incident. Police say 35-year-old Mississauga man Patrick Horgan is facing a number of charges, including robbery, fleeing from police, dangerous operation of a vehicle, breach of probation and more.
Both of the accused were held for bail hearings and appeared in court.
