Toronto Police are investigating after multiple armed robberies occurred in Tuesday’s early hours at convenience stores.

First, police reported a robbery that took place at Lawrence Avenue East and Underhill Avenue just after 3 am.

In this instance, two males reportedly entered a convenience store with their faces covered, and one was carrying a black handgun. Money and products were stolen, police say, and the suspects fled in a black car.

One suspect was described as being Black, about 5’6 in height, slim, age 25, and wearing a black scarf and dark hoodie. The second was described as 5’6, slim, and wearing a black hoodie.

Police reported that another robbery took place at Sheppard Avenue East and Bayview Avenue just after 3:30 am.

Described as a “convenience store hold-up,” the incident reportedly involved two suspects, one with a gun, who arrived in a black car.

The pair stole money and products, police say, and only one suspect was identified — they were described as Black, aged 20 to 30, 5’7 in height with dark hair, a medium build, and wearing a handkerchief over his face.

Police then reported an incident, also located at Sheppard and Bayview, where a robbery took place and money and products were taken, as well as a white BMW.

The suspects reportedly matched the descriptions from the earlier robbery, and they fled in both the aforementioned black car and the stolen vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-7350, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477), online, on Facebook, or by texting TOR and your message to CRIMES (274637).
