The Toronto Police Service has released new images of a man involved in a robbery that took place in the Annex area last month and is seeking help from the public to identify him.

According to police, the incident occurred on October 14 at around 5:30 p.m., when an 87-year-old woman was walking on Brunswick Avenue, south of Bloor West. The woman was attacked by a man from behind. He threw her to the ground and robbed her of her belongings. He then fled the area on foot, heading east through an alleyway. 

Police previously released images of the suspect, however newly released security camera images and photos show the man’s face more clearly. He is described as about six feet tall with a thin build. At the time of the robbery, he was carrying a white bag and wearing a dark toque, two-toned sweater, dark pants, and dark shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 416-808-1400 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-8477.
