Following a crime spree over Mother’s Day weekend, a second Toronto neighborhood has reported yet another outbreak of break-ins and damage.
Businesses in and around Leslieville reported many break-ins and robberies between Sunday evening and early Monday morning.
Billy Truong, the proprietor of Billy’s Burgers on Pape, wrote on Facebook on Monday that his restaurant was one of the six establishments that had so far been impacted by the crime wave.
In a photo posted by Triple A Bar on Queen, the glass by the door handle had been broken.
Additionally, The Coal Miner’s Daughter reported that around 9:30 p.m. on Sunday night, the door to its Leslieville site was broken. Today, The Side Kitchen also uploaded a picture of the broken glass on their front door.
“A succession of break-ins in the region, including our shop, put the frosting on the cake after an exceptionally difficult week,” claimed the Queen East shop.
According to reports, the Donut Factory and East End Garden Centre were also impacted.
According to blogTO, the Toronto Police Service received two reports of break-ins at the garden centre and another store, but no investigator had been assigned to the case at that time.
This spate of thefts follows a crime wave that has affected businesses around Dundas West over the previous month. Police are still looking for a man they believe to be a suspect.
