Three arrested, three sought after man abducted and robbed in Toronto: police

Toronto police have arrested three suspects and are seeking three more in an abduction they say took place earlier this month.

Police say a 21-year-old man was approached from behind by four people, one of them armed with a stun gun, who choked and robbed him on Nov. 16.

They say the man was forced to withdraw money at a bank machine, then taken to an east-end motel, where he was held until he raised his credit limit.

Police say he was released after the suspects emptied his bank account.

An 18-year-old man and two 21-year-old women have been arrested and each face multiple charges, including conspiracy to commit an indictable offence and using a credit card obtained by crime.

Three other men are sought in connection with the incident, and police say all are considered armed and dangerous.
