Ottawa police have released images of two men suspected of throwing a woman through a glass window and beating her unconscious in the ByWard Market in October.

Police said in a news release on Monday that two men between the ages of 25 and 35 approached a woman at a Clarence Street bar on the night of Oct. 17, 2015. The men told her they were lawyers from the Toronto area, police said.

The woman left the bar with another woman around 2:30 a.m. and headed to a pay station in a parking lot at 141 Clarence St., police said.

The men “viciously grabbed one of the women from behind and threw her through a glass window, shattering it,” police said in a news release.

The men repeatedly kicked the woman in the head and chest until she was unconscious, police said. She was treated in hospital and later released, police said.

The second woman was not injured during the attack, police said.

Cst. Chuck Benoit said that police began an investigation the day of the attack. After leads were unsuccessful, photos captured by parking lot surveillance cameras near the scene of the attack were released to the public.

Ottawa police have also contacted Toronto police as part of the investigation in case the men are lawyers from the area.

Anyone with information about the case or the suspects is asked to contact Ottawa police at 613-236-1222 ext. 5166 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

HALIFAX: Iraqi Hassan Al-Awaid helped thousands pretend they were in Canada to get around citizenship rules

Halifax man helped thousands pretend they were in Canada to get around citizenship rules

If anyone dialed the Halifax phone number Mohd Morelley wrote in his application for citizenship as proof he was integrating in Canada, it would ring out in an office on the outskirts of Halifax. Someone might answer, but it wouldn’t be Morelley or his wife or three children, who all wanted to be Canadians.

They were all living in Kuwait.

Along with the bogus phone number, Morelley and his family bought a full-service bogus citizenship package from an immigration consultant, including a Halifax address for a home he never lived in, tax returns and employment records for a job he never held, payment of utility bills he never used, ATM withdrawals to show local transactions he didn’t make and a letter from a local Islamic society saying he was deeply involved in the activities at a mosque he didn’t attend.

My office is one of the famous offices in Nova Scotia

Everything needed to create a pretend life in Canada.

Morelley’s phantom phone — and fake life — were far from unique: more than 140 cell phones, labeled with the number and name of a client, were organized in the Bedford Highway office of the Canadian Commercial Group, run by immigration consultant Hassan Al-Awaid.

Stephanie and Alphonso Warren are pictured in court in 2009.

The mother of “Baby Angelica,” the infant found abandoned in a Toronto parking garage stairwell in 2008, has been killed in Jamaica. Her husband, who was criminally convicted of abandoning the baby, is in custody, a seemingly violent conclusion to a parenting saga from hell.

With the clock hands approaching midnight and a New Year on the horizon, 39-year-old Stephanie Warren of Toronto, mother to “Baby Angelica,” was stabbed to death — allegedly by her Jamaican husband, Alphonso Warren, according to the Jamaica Constabulary Force.

The couple is infamous for having repeatedly faced allegations of mistreating their children in Canada and abroad. The mummified remains of a later child of the couple, a 2-year-old known as “Baby Joshua,” were found in 2012, zipped inside a suitcase in the Warrens’ inner-city Kingston, Jamaica, home.

Jamaican police were called to the couple’s apartment around 11:20 p.m. this New Year’s Eve to investigate a domestic dispute.

Man charged after theft at Vaughan bakery

York Regional Police allege the man, 31, took the items while holding a large knife. Police also say the man resisted arrest.

 By: Staff Reporter, Published on Thu Dec 31 2015

A man faces several charges, including theft, after consuming an energy drink and a loaf of bread from a Vaughan bakery.

According to York Regional Police Const. Andy Pattenden, the 31-year-old man took the items from a bakery north-east of Pine Valley Drive and Highway 7 around 7:45 p.m. Wednesday.

Pattenden said the man – while holding a large knife – drank a Red Bull drink and ate a loaf of bread without paying for the items.

Bakery staff got into an argument with the man and called police.

Pattenden added the man didn’t use the knife to steal the drink and the bread.

Police said in a statement that officers arrived as the man left the bakery. The officers were able to arrest the man, but he resisted being taken into custody.

Witali Miloslawski is charged with theft under $5,000, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, carrying a concealed weapon, assault with a weapon and two counts of assault police officer.

Miloslawski was scheduled to appear at Newmarket court Thursday for a bail hearing.
