A tantalizing tweet from Peel Regional Police suggests a would-be carjacker got more than he bargained for in Mississauga this morning. The tweet indicated a person was filling up at a gas station in the Steeles Avenue West-Mississauga Road area shortly before 9 this morning when the suspect approached carrying a weapon. At that point a third-party “interjected & held suspect” the tweet says; however, the “interjection” must have carried some force with it, because the would-be-carjacker ended up in hospital with minor injuries under police custody. Peel Region Police have reported almost 1,500 auto thefts in the first two months of 2023, against 878 a year earlier. 2022 saw over 6,000 auto thefts compared to 3,376 in 2020.
