Marentette and University Avenue East as seen in Google Maps

Windsor Police have a 19-year-old in custody after a robbery east of Downtown.

Police were called to the area of Marentette and University just before 5pm yesterday after someone reported a robbery.

Investigation has revealed that two male victims aged 18 and 23 were walking south in the alley West of Marentette when they heard male voices yelling at them. They turned to see what the yelling was about when they were rushed by 2 suspects brandishing box cutter exacto knives.

One of the suspects slashed at one victim cutting his sweater. He demanded that the suspect turn over his money. The second suspect held his box cutter to the second victims throat and also demanded money. The victim gave him a loonie.

The suspect went through his pockets and located a phone and took it from the victim. The suspects then walked away Southbound towards the Tim Horton’s. The victims called police to report the incident. Officers attended the area, located and placed the two suspects, aged 17 and 19 under arrest without incident.

The box cutter exacto knives were recovered by police.

19 year old Windsor resident Mustafa Malih is charged with 2 counts of Robbery and Failing to Comply with a Weapons Prohibition.

A 17 year old young person is also charged with 2 counts of Robbery.
