One man has been arrested and police are searching for another in connection with a home invasion in King West Village that began when two suspects blocked a victim's car in an underground parking garage, forced them up to their home at gunpoint and locked them in a room while they were robbed.

Toronto police say a 28-year-old Toronto man wanted in the November incident surrendered himself to police.

He was charged with attempted murder, robbery with a firearm, forcible confinement, possession of a restricted loaded firearm and possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000. He was set to attend a bail hearing Wednesday, police say.

Toronto police say it happened around 8:45 p.m. on Nov. 30, in the King Street West and Strachan Avenue area.

According to investigators, the victim was getting into their car in the parking garage of a condominium, when two armed suspects wearing ski masks blocked the car with their vehicle.

The suspects then got into the victim's car and pointed a gun at them, police said in a news release. The victim was handcuffed and a ski mask was placed over their head before they were taken up to their condo, where another tenant was inside.

That second tenant was also handcuffed and the victims were forced into a bedroom while the suspects allegedly ransacked the unit in search of valuables, which were then placed into duffel bags.

2nd suspect still at large

When a third person showed up and confronted the suspects, they allegedly shot the person three times before fleeing with the valuables.

That victim was taken to hospital and survived, but they suffered what police say are life-altering injuries.

Investigators say a second suspect is still at large, and they're asking the public's help identifying them.

He is described as five feet, 10 inches to six feet tall, with a heavy build. He was seen wearing a dark winter jacket, a dark face covering and black running shoes.

Police say he is considered armed and dangerous, and if located, to call 911 immediately. Anyone with information is asked to contact investigators at 416-808-7350 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 416-222-8477.
