Toronto police are asking for the public’s assistance identifying two men who robbed a jewellery store last month while wearing burkas.

Edmond Bakos, the owner of the York Mills-Leslie Street-area Mona-Clara Jewellers, said he didn’t think twice about the people who walked into his store on OCt. 14 until one them produced a handgun and demanded jewellery in a distinctly masculine voice.

“Three seconds after they walked in, they pulled out a gun and said, ‘It’s a holdup,’” Bakos said.

While one suspect emptied a display of jewellery into his handbag, the second went with a female staff member to lock the entrance.

The pair got away with about $500,000 in jewellery during the five-minute holdup, Holdup squad Staff-Insp. Mike Earl told reporters Wednesday. The robbery took place at about 11 a.m., at a “busy” mall plaza, he said.

Bakos described the incident as traumatic.

Police are asking for the public’s assistance in finding the robbers. The first suspect is described as a black male, approximately 5”11 wearing black clothes.  The second suspect was also male, approximately 6”3 with no description of ethnicity.

VANCOUVER: Sketch of sex assault and stabbing suspect released

Police say a 35-year-old woman was dragged into car, stabbed and sexually assaulted Saturday night

Vancouver sex assault and stabbing: suspect sketch released

CBC News Posted: Oct 28, 2014 8:03 PM PT Last Updated: Oct 29, 2014 7:44 AM PT

Vancouver police have released a composite sketch of the man who allegedly dragged a 35-year-old woman into a car in an East Vancouver alley, then stabbed and sexually assaulted her.

The attack took place at around midnight on Saturday, when the woman was walking in the east lane of Joyce Street near Archimedes Street, a few blocks south of the Joyce-Collingwood SkyTrain station.

She was approached by a man in an older-model dark bluish-green minivan that has tinted side windows and a sliding door on the passenger side.

Police say the man grabbed her and dragged her into the minivan, drove to an area near East 45th Avenue and Rupert Street, and then stabbed her and assaulted her.

“The victim managed to scream and fight off her attacker, but not before receiving serious injuries,” said Vancouver Police Department​ Const. Brian Montague.

The woman was released from hospital on Monday, police said.

VPD investigators believe the man responsible for the attack is in his mid-to-late-40s, possibly Middle Eastern, with an olive skin tone and a heavy, solid build. Interviews with the victim and other witnesses put him at six feet to six feet two inches tall and weighing 250 pounds.

Police say the suspect spoke with an accent and is believed to be balding, with a short, shaved fringe of black hair around the sides and back of his head.

Officers say they have received some tips from the public, but believe others must have seen or heard something in either of those locationsand are asking for those witnesses — including at least two drivers who went by East 45th Avenue near Rupert Street at around the time of the assault — to come forward.

Police are asking anyone who may know or have seen anything to contact the Vancouver Sex Crimes Unit at 604-717-0601.

Police say they have arrested a “serial predator” who broke into 59 homes in the Etobicoke area over the last three years and on a number of occasions sexually assaulted women who were sleeping inside.

The suspect’s wife is also facing seven charges in connection with the investigation.

The incidents have taken place in the early morning hours in the eastern and central Etobicoke areas with a large number of them clustered between Bloor Street to the north, The Queensway to the south, Islington Avenue to the west and Royal York Road to the east.

Though the break-ins have taken place in a period spanning from August, 2011 to August 2014, police say they usually took place in bunches with the suspect often targeting a number of homes in the same neighbourhood.

On one such spree on Sept. 7, 2012 the masked suspect allegedly broke into a home near Bloor Street and Islington Avenue at around 3:10 a.m. and sexually assaulted a sleeping 62-year-old woman before fleeing on foot. About 30 minutes later a man matching the same description allegedly broke into a home near Royal York Road and The Queensway and proceeded to sexually assault a 70-year-old woman asleep inside.

(…)

Though many of the victims were alone at the time, others were home with their partners or other family members, leading police to believe that single women were not targeted and that the break ins and sexual assaults were “sometimes a crime of opportunity,” Beaven-Desjardins said.

The arrest of the suspect on Wednesday follows an “exhaustive investigation” and several close calls where the suspect was pursued by officers but not apprehended.

Speaking with reporters on Friday, Beaven-Desjardins said that it is “possible” that the suspect’s wife aided him in fleeing the scene of some of the break-and-enters.

Anieph Fitzroy Burton, 32, of Toronto, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with 95 offences, including 11 counts of sexual assaults, three counts of overcoming resistance by choking, one count of sexual assault causing bodily harm and four counts of assault.

Burton’s wife, 31-year-old Jehanneiry Beaton, was also arrested on Wednesday and charged with six counts of break-and-enter and one count of break-and-enter with intent.

Police say they believe there could be additional victims out there.

“There may be many more victims both in Toronto and across our border into Peel Region,” Beaven-Desjardins said. “We encourage the public to come forth and report any incidents related to this.”

The teen facing charges for a fatal shooting near a Burnaby mall was carrying a loaded handgun at the time of his arrest, say homicide investigators.

The 16-year-old, who cannot be named because of his age, is accused of gunning down Aladdin Ramadan last week.

The body of the 20-year-old was found in front of a black Infiniti G37 near the intersection of Lougheed Highway and Rosser Avenue, close to Brentwood Mall, and residents reported hearing three shots in quick succession.

 The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says the suspect was taken into custody in Surrey Thursday night, with help from the Burnaby RCMP and a tactical team.

Charges of second-degree murder have been approved, says IHIT.
