Toronto Police warn against muggers at Jane and Lawrence

Late last week, Toronto Police issued a warning about the rash of robberies in the Weston area. They said:

Recently in the area of Lawrence Ave between Weston Rd and Jane Street there have been a number of street robberies.

The suspects appear to be targeting people for their cell phones or walkmans. We caution everyone to be alert and aware of your surroundings at all times and to use these devices with discretion.

One thought on “Toronto Police warn against muggers at Jane and Lawrence”

  1. Just exactly how does being “aware of your surroundings” help if you’re about to be mugged?

    What about more police patrolling on foot, or somehow visible? I don’t think the favoured targets — young teenagers and older women — have the potential on their own to frighten potential attackers.
