Investigators with the York Regional Police Hold-Up Unit have charged two men and one male youth following a carjacking in the City of Markham.

On Thursday, Oct. 10, 2019, at 5 p.m., York Regional Police were called to the Pacific Mall, located at 4300 Steeles Avenue, for a report of a carjacking. When officers arrived, they learned that the victim was sitting inside of his vehicle that was parked in the underground parking garage. He was approached by two men. One of them pointed a handgun at the victim and demanded he get out of the vehicle. The victim complied and the suspects drove away in the victim’s Porsche 911, as well as the BMW M3 they had arrived in. The victim was not physically injured.

Shortly before 9 p.m., investigators located the suspect vehicles in a parking garage at Scarborough Town Centre. With the assistance of officers with the Canine Unit and the Emergency Response Unit, the suspects were taken into custody.

Further investigation revealed that the BMW M3 was the vehicle that had been stolen on Friday, Oct. 4, 2019, shortly before 8 p.m., from a residence in the area of Major Mackenzie Drive West and McNaughton Road East in the City of Vaughan. In that incident the victim was attempting to sell his vehicle online and had arranged to meet with a potential buyer. Two men arrived at the victim’s residence and were shown the vehicle. One of the men pulled out a handgun, pointed it at the victim and struck him with it, then stole his keys. Both suspects fled the area with the stolen vehicle and the vehicle they had arrived in.
