Investigators from the 22 Division Criminal Investigations Bureau are currently searching for three men that are responsible for the theft of two puppies.
On Monday, June 1, 2020, at approximately 7:15 p.m., the victim in this incident met with three men in the area of Bovaird Drive and Conestoga Drive in the City of Brampton, for the purposes of selling two bulldog puppies.
During the transaction, the victim discovered that the men were trying to steal the puppies and attempted to retrieve them. The men assaulted the victim and fled in a 2017, white Hyundai with Ontario licence plate CDWP 974. The victim followed the vehicle and attempted to recover the puppies while stopped at a traffic light, however the suspects accelerated away and dragged the victim for a short distance.
Investigators believe the suspects may be attempting to sell the puppies in the Toronto area, and suggest all potential purchasers to question the source of any animals they may be attempting to purchase.
