UPDATE: Police seek public assistance in identifying carjacking suspects

The Windsor Police Service is asking the public’s assistance to identify three suspects responsible for multiple carjackings and attempted carjackings over the weekend.

On November 4 and 5, 2023, officers responded to two vehicle robberies and two attempted vehicle robberies around the city. In each case, a suspect walked up to the driver’s side window, assaulted the motorist, and tried to steal the vehicle. Three of the four victims were sprayed in the face with a noxious substance. 

The incidents occurred at the following locations: 

  • 300 block of Tecumseh Road East at 3:30 a.m. on Nov. 4
  • 300 block of Tuscarora Street at 5 a.m. on Nov. 4
  • 2500 block of Lincoln Road at 6 a.m. on Nov. 4
  • 1400 block of Holburn Street at 3 a.m. on Nov. 5

Members of the Windsor Police Major Crimes Unit have since obtained video footage of the three suspects exiting a grey Grand Caravan believed to have been used in the carjackings. The Caravan was reported stolen on November 1 and involved in a minor hit-and-run incident two days later in a parking lot in the 900 block of Ottawa Street. 

Anyone with information on the suspects is asked to call the Major Crimes Unit at 519-255-6700, ext. 4830. They can also contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at 519-258-8477 (TIPS) or online at www.catchcrooks.com
