The Orangeville Police Service is investigating a robbery that took place Monday evening in the area of Alder Street Arena and Montgomery Village Public School.

On Monday, September 4, 2017 at approximately 8:30 p.m., a 15-year-old male and two friends were walking along the asphalt path between Alder Street Arena and Montgomery Village Public School. The three males were confronted by two other males believed to be approximately 20-years-old.

During the confrontation one of the two older males revealed a baseball bat from under his coat, making threats towards the 15-year-old male. The older male struck the 15-year-old male on the knee with the bat and knocked the male off of a scooter he was riding. The older male then took the scooter from the victim and fled from the area.

One of the suspects is described as being white, tall, approximately 20-years-old wearing a bulky windbreaker. The second suspect is described as white, (shorter than the first suspect) with dark hair, wearing a white and black Nike windbreaker.

The scooter is described as an “Affiniti” brand, black with purple wheels and a chrome handle bar.

Police are continuing their investigation and would like to hear from anyone who has information about the incident.
