Police say the victim had just received his ODSP benefits on a prepaid Visa card and was trying to access them at a gas station store when a suspect approached, indicating he had a weapon.

The suspect allegedly took the prepaid Visa card from him, then when the victim asked for it back, gave him a different card with no money on it.

Police say the suspect watched the victim attempt to enter his PIN code then used the code to withdraw money from the real card.
