On Monday, August 22, 2016, shortly after 10:30 a.m., a man rang a doorbell of a residence in the area of Rizal Avenue and Copper Creek Drive. A woman answered the door and the man pushed his way into the house, knocking her to the ground. The man ripped a gold chain from around the woman’s neck then fled outside to his vehicle and drove off. The 40-year-old victim sustained minor injuries.
Investigators were able to identify the suspect and on Tuesday, September 13, 2016, he was located in the Scarborough area and placed under arrest without incident.
Investigators have linked this suspect to two other similar robberies that occurred in the City of Toronto.
Oshane DALEY, 26, Town of Ajax has been charged with 3 counts of robbery.
