Police in Toronto have arrested six people after a woman was allegedly robbed at gunpoint in a car before her home was broken into by the same group.
Toronto police said the series of events began in the area of Eglinton Avenue East and Mount Pleasant Road on Jan. 15, when a woman met a man she knew and got into his car.
According to police, once she was inside the vehicle, two other men wearing disguises pointed a gun at her. The three then reportedly stole her phone and keys.
