A man from Whitby, Ont., has been charged in relation to a brazen carjacking that allegedly took place inside someone’s home.
Toronto police said three men broke into a house around Yonge Street and Sheppard Avenue East around 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
The men allegedly threatened the homeowner with a knife and took the keys to their vehicle.
The men then left the area in two vehicles.
Police said it was then that a provincial carjacking task force was able to find the vehicles and “initiate a takedown” around Midland Avenue and Huntingwood Drive.
Toronto police said a 23-year-old man from Whitby was charged with conspiracy to commit an indictable offence, break-and-enter, robbery with an offensive weapon and possession of property obtained by crime.
The two other suspects are still outstanding.
