  Handgun Pointed at Teens

Sep 05, 2017 14:37 ET

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

On Monday, September 4, 2017, 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.

Suspect #1 is described as a male, white, 13-14 years old, about 5'3" tall, weighing 130 lbs. with a slender build, brown curly hair, wearing a red short-sleeved shirt and jeans.

Suspect #2 is described as a female, white, 15 years old, 5'5" tall, weighing about 119 lbs., with long blonde hair, wearing a white-hooded sweatshirt and grey jogging pants.

Suspect #3 is described as a male, white, 13-14 years old, about 5'5" tall, 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.

Anonymous information can be sent to Durham Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.durhamregionalcrimestoppers.ca and tipsters may be eligible for a $2,000 cash reward.
