Toronto police are looking for a gunman after a spree of street robberies early Friday in which five separate women were targeted.According to The Star:
The robberies began at 6 a.m. Within 90 minutes, police say the same man approached women at Queens Quay and Spadina Ave., Yorkville, Albany Ave. and Dupont St., Front St. near Blue Jays Way, and Markham St. and Bloor St. W.
In each case, the man approached the woman, pointed a gun at her and demanded cash.
Investigators believe all the robberies were the work of one person, said Toronto police Const. Tony Vella.
Given the range of locations, Vella said the bandit was likely driving a vehicle or on a bicycle.
No injuries were reported.
Officers have set up a command post at 777 Bloor St. W., near Christie Pits park.
The suspect is described as a white male, 30 years old, with black, spiky hair.
Vella said police believe there may be more victims, and are urging women to be aware of their surroundings and to call police if they have been affected.
