Police seek witnesses after gun pointed at girls in Oshawa park

The Durham Regional Police are trying to identify three suspects after a group of teenaged girls were threatened with a handgun in an Oshawa park.

On Sept. 4, at approximately 1:00 p.m., members of Central East Division were called to Farewell Park in the Riverside Drive South/Palace Street area of Oshawa. Three teenaged females (ages 12 and 13) were walking through the green space when they were approached by three teens. The suspects grabbed a water bottle from one of the females and left. The three females then followed the suspects and demanded the water bottle be returned.

At that point, one of the suspects pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the female victims. The suspects then left in a northerly direction. Responding officers searched the area, but no arrests were made.

The first suspect is described as a male, white, 13-14 years old, 5’3, weighing 130 lbs. with a slender build, brown curly hair, wearing a red short-sleeved shirt and jeans.

The second suspect is described as a female, white, 15-years-old, 5’5, weighing about 119 lbs., with long blonde hair, wearing a white-hooded sweatshirt and grey jogging pants.

The third suspect is described as a male, white, 13-14 years old, 5’5, wearing a white hoody and jeans.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Det. McArthur of the Central East Division Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 2740.
