Arrest made in Oshawa hotel robbery

Two people have been charged after robbing a man at an Oshawa hotel.

The robbery occurred early in the morning on Nov. 11 in a hotel on Bloor Street West in Oshawa.

Police say that a man arranged to meet an escort at the hotel, but when he entered the room and handed over cash to the woman, a man came out of the bathroom with his face covered and threatened to shoot him.

The man fled and called police.

Now, a 29-year-old man from Brampton and a 24-year-old female from Toronto are both charged with robbery. The pair were released on a promise to appear.

A 26-year-old man from Pickering was also arrested in connection to this incident when police noticed him in possession of a loaded Ruger handgun.

Anyone with information that could help investigators is asked to contact D/Cst. Van Belleghem at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 1854.
