Police looking for South Asian man suspected of a carjacking in Mississauga

Mississauga (Feb 29) – Peel police are looking for a South Asian male suspect in connection with a carjacking incident in Mississauga earlier this month.

On February 8 at around 3:15 p.m., the victim was operating her motor vehicle near Preston Meadow Avenue and Thornwood Road in Mississauga, where she stopped briefly at a community mailbox. As she exited her car, the victim was approached by the suspect and assaulted, police said in a news release. She was thrown to the ground, and the suspect drove away in her car. The victim sustained minor injuries during the robbery and was treated and released from a local hospital.

A short time later, investigators located the victim’s vehicle abandoned near James Austin Drive and Acorn Place in Mississauga.

Police describes the suspect as a male of South Asian descent in his 20s, wearing sunglasses and a blue coat with his face covered. He is believed to be associated with two getaway cars: a white Honda Civic with steel rims with apparent damage to the passenger side rear quarter panel and a black Honda HR-V.

Investigators are asking anyone who may have been in the Preston Meadow Avenue/ Thornwood Road or James Austin Drive/Acorn Place area who may have dashcam footage or any information in relation to this investigation, to call investigators at the Central Robbery Bureau at (905) 453–2121, ext. 3410.
