Police have arrested one suspect but are on the search for two others after an attempted armed robbery.
Shortly before 4 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 12, police were called to a residence on Bruce Street in Oshawa. According to police, three guests in the home had attempted to rob four of the residents, with one suspect brandishing a gun.
The suspects fled the scene, at which time the police were called.
Officers and a K-9 unit responded to the scene and searched the area. The search turned up a car matching witness descriptions of the one used by the fleeing suspects. One male was arrested at that time, with the search still on for two others.
The first suspect is described as a black male, 21 to 22 years of age and six feet and one inch tall. He was last seen with short hair in dreadlocks and a moustache, and was wearing a dark green hooded sweatshirt wrapped around his face and a brown sweater.
The second suspect is described as a black male, 19 to 21 years of age and five feet and seven inches tall. He was last seen with shoulder-length hair in two distinct corn rows, and was wearing a black baseball cap, black shirt and a black hooded sweatshirt wrapped around his face.
A 26-year-old male of Athol Street East has been charged with robbery with an offensive weapon, use of a firearm to commit an indictable offence, pointing a firearm, possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace and breaching probation in connection with this incident.
