Youths charged in several Toronto area robberies; victims tied up


MISSISSAUGA, Ont.  Two 16-year-olds are in custody following three recent store robberies in which victims were tied up.

Peel police say the robberies occurred over a week in late October.

They say masked suspects entered electronics stores in Mississauga, Aurora and Brampton.

The intruders zip-tied employees’ or customers’ hands, stole items, then fled in a stolen vehicle.

In one case, a customer was hurt in an altercation.

Police say the youths were arrested in Toronto last week and face robbery and other charges.
