The Toronto police are looking for two men wanted for allegedly robbing and sexually assaulting a woman in a downtown condo this week.
According to police, on Wednesday, July 10 at 12:45 am, a 19-year-old woman entered a condo building elevator in the King and Bathurst Street area. At this time, two men entered the elevator behind her.
Police said one of the men tried to steal her cell phone and a struggle ensued. The woman, however, was able to maintain possession of her phone.
The man then produced a handgun and “successfully” robbed her of the phone, according to police.
The woman was then violently dragged out of the elevator and sexually assaulted in a nearby stairwell by both men.
Following the assault, the two men made their way to the underground parking garage and fled in a vehicle in an unknown direction.
The first suspect is described as being Black with a dark complexion, in his early 20s, 5’8″ to 5’10”, with a medium build, brown eyes, moustache, and chin facial hair.
He was wearing a navy blue or black baseball cap with a white symbol on the front, a black short sleeve shirt with vertical white stripes with a red and white star on the right arm, blue jeans, white ‘Gucci’ sneakers, and ‘Gucci’ sunglasses.
The second suspect is described as Black with a dark complexion, in his early 20s, 5’8″ to 5’10”, with a medium build, brown eyes, moustache and goatee, and cornrow braids in his hair.
He was wearing a brown and beige camouflaged hooded sweatshirt, black baggy pants, and dark coloured shoes.
The suspect vehicle was described as a grey or silver coloured four-door Mazda with damage to rear passenger side bumper that appears to be secured with strips of black tape.
