Windsor Police have released an update to a story they informed the public about over the weekend where a 16-year-old was approached by fake police officers and had his bike stolen.

Police originally said the suspects had Windsor Police flashes on their shirts but have now revised that statement saying the shirts contained an “unknown insignia”.

An investigation conducted by Detectives from the Windsor Police Service Investigations branch revealed that the male suspects in the robbery were wearing long sleeve, light blue shirts with an unknown insignia on the upper part of each sleeve. Police say they do not know what the insignia was, however it was not a Windsor Police insignia.

Police say it was also learned that on a shirt worn by one of the suspects there were numbers on the left front breast pocket. They say the numbers on this shirt were inconsistent with the style currently worn by officers of the Windsor Police Service.

Although these shirts are similar to what Windsor Police Auxiliary, Special constables and Cadets wear, they are not the same shirts used by current Windsor Police officers.

Police say that through investigation they also learned that the three suspects did not identify themselves as police officers as was first reported by media relations officers.

The Windsor Police service is asking anyone with information regarding this robbery contact the Windsor Police Investigations branch at 51-255-6700 EXT: 4830.
