Halton Regional Police are looking for a group of suspects after a violent robbery at a park in Oakville sent three people to hospital early Sunday morning (June 26).
Police said they were alerted of a robbery at Shell Park at approximately 1 a.m. on Sunday where a group of suspects approached three young men who were together in the park and proceeded to assault and rob them.
One victim, a 20-year-old male, was “struck in the head with a firearm and punched,” police say.
The suspect, who was holding a handgun, demanded he hand over his belongings. A chain was stolen from the victim.
A second victim, an 18-year-old male, was assaulted by one of the suspects and suffered unknown injuries. Police say he had his chain and wallet stolen.
A third victim, also 18 years old, was assaulted and suffered unknown injuries. Nothing was stolen from him.
All three victims, say police, were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Investigators are working on identifying all parties responsible for the robbery. Police are not releasing descriptions of the suspects as they believe they might be underage.
