Toronto police seek teens after woman robbed, grandchild grabbed Add to ...

Toronto police are looking for three teens they say robbed a woman and tried to pull her young grandchild out of a stroller.

It’s alleged the male teenagers swarmed the woman as she pushed her grandchild in the stroller in the Jane Street and Sheppard Avenue West area late last week.

Police say one of them held the woman’s face so she couldn’t scream while they robbed her of her personal belongings.

It’s also alleged one of the teens took hold of the young child’s neck and tried to lift the child out of the stroller, but the child was strapped in and could not be pulled out.

Police say the three teens fled when a transit bus pulled up to a nearby stop to let some passengers out.

The three suspects are described as black and about 15 or 16 years old, and police are urging anyone with information to contact investigators or Crime Stoppers.
