Police are looking for two suspects after a street level robbery and attempt abduction in Pickering yesterday evening.

On Thursday December 7, 2017, at approximately 7 p.m. a male pulled into the driveway of his residence in the Rosebank Road and Toynevale Road area of Pickering. He got out of his car and was approached by two unknown males who exited another vehicle. The suspects, one armed with a handgun, demanded he hand over his keys and laptop. The victim was told to get into their vehicle, and when he refused a physical altercation took place. The victim's wife came out of the house and was involved the altercation.

The suspects then fled in the vehicle they arrived in, a grey Honda or Toyota. A second vehicle, a silver SUV with dark tinted windows was seen travelling behind the suspect vehicle.

The victims were treated for minor injuries.

Both suspects are described as: males, with olive complexions, about 6' tall, late 20s with medium builds. Both had dark hair and chin strap style beards and both were wearing dark clothing.
