A bystander witnessed a cat being thrown out the window of a moving car around 9pm Saturday evening in Windsor’s west end. The vehicle is described as a Volkswagen Jetta, black in colour. Unfortunately, no further description and no plate information was obtained.
The suspect vehicle was last seen traveling southbound on Ojibway Parkway. Anyone with any information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 519-258-8477.
A young male was jumped by a large group of black males at the bridge on Little River Road, just east of the intersection of Riverdale and Little River. The incident occurred Saturday night around 10:30pm.
The suspects allegedly stole all of the victim’s possessions, including his wallet. One of the suspects, described as dark skinned, stocky, and having short hair, uttered several death threats to the victim as well.
Subsequently, further down the Ganatchio Trail, near the bridge on McHugh Street, close to the WFCU Centre, there was reports of another person being jumped in the woods around 11:30pm. It is unknown if there was a connection between the two mugging incidents.
The first described incident seems awfully familiar to the incident which occurred on Monday, May 24th, when a young male was allegedly jumped by a group of about 15 black males, who took his wallet and iPod at the Ford Test Track near Reginald.
A black male suspect attempted to steal a bicycle from a cyclist on Aylmer Road in the Downtown area around 7pm Saturday evening. Police rushed to the scene as the cyclist struggled with the thief to keep his bike.
Then around 2am, early Sunday morning, a cyclist was assaulted and robbed of his bike in the 2600 block of Lauzon Parkway (near Tecumseh Road). No description of the assailant was given. EMS attended the scene to assess the cyclist’s injuries, which were minor in nature.
