Man robbed at Pickering GO Station pedestrian bridge

Police are searching for a male suspect who pulled a knife after the toy gun he initially brandished did not fool the victim.

On Wednesday, November 18, 2015, at approximately 2:00 p.m., officers from West Division responded to the Pickering GO pedestrian bridge for an armed robbery. A 21-year-old male was walking northbound across the bridge when a male suspect stepped in front of him, pointing a toy gun at him and demanding his belongings. The victim initially did not comply with the demand as he recognized the gun to be a toy. The suspect then pointed a small pocket knife at him and the victim handed over a quantity of cash. The suspect then fled on foot towards the Pickering Town Centre.

The victim was not physically injured during the robbery.

The suspect is described as male, black, 20 to 30 years old, and wearing a camo-style jacket with a fur-lined hood, low-riding jeans and work boots.

Anyone with new information about this investigation is asked to contact Det. Derusha of the West Division Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 2535.

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