Toronto Police request public’s assistance in UTSG abduction case

The Toronto Police Service has requested the public’s assistance in identifying and locating three men who were allegedly involved in an abduction that took place at UTSG earlier this month.

On November 16, it is alleged that a man was approached by four individuals in the area surrounding St. George Street and Willcocks Street. Using what police are calling a “conducted energy weapon,” the suspects choked and robbed the man.

They then forced him to withdraw money from a nearby bank machine and enter a cab which brought him to the east end of the city. There, he was held in a motel where he was forced to raise his credit limit. The suspects then released the man after draining his bank account.

Three suspects are still at large, including Adisoon Admoon, 20, and Arthur McLean, 19. They are both wanted for kidnapping in pursuit of ransom or service, forcible confinement, violent robbery, assault by choking, and five counts of using a credit card obtained by crime.

The third suspect, who is yet to be identified, is described by police as a Black male, between 20–25 years old, six feet tall, and with a skinny build. He was seen last wearing blue faded jeans, a grey or beige jacket, a grey hoodie, a red baseball hat with a white symbol, and black shoes.

Toronto police advise against approaching these individuals. “They are all considered armed, violent and dangerous,” according to the news release. If located, police urge individuals to call 911 immediately.

Police also believe that there may be other victims besides the man abducted at UTSG. Any information can be directed to 416-808-5200. Anonymous information can be given at 416-222-8477.

Three individuals have already been arrested in connection to this abduction.

Daeshawn Grant, 18, was arrested and charged with accessory after the fact to commit an indictable offence, conspiracy to commit an indictable offence, three counts of using a credit card obtained through crime, possession of the proceeds of crime, failure to comply with probation, and failure to comply with recognizance.

Kaelin Sankar, 21, was arrested and charged with accessory after the fact to commit an indictable offence, conspiracy to commit an indictable offence, and three counts of using a credit card obtained through crime.

Tanika Galloway, 21, was arrested and charged with kidnapping in pursuit of ransom or service, forcible confinement, violent robbery, assault by choking, and five counts of using a credit card obtained through crime. Grant, Sankar, and Galloway appeared before the College Park Court on November 21.
