A black Lamborghini found parked on a quiet residential street in Etobicoke’s Richview area is believed to be linked to a home invasion in downtown Toronto.

Speaking to the media outside a residence on Summitcrest Drive, just east of Islington Avenue and north of Eglinton Avenue West, on Thursday, May 19, Toronto police Duty Insp. Paul Krawczyk said the incident happened at a condo near Spadina Avenue and Fort York Boulevard.

He said during that home invasion, a vehicle was stolen. That car, along with the individual believed to have stolen it, were both located this morning in central Etobicoke.

One male suspect is now in police custody. Charges have yet to be announced as the investigation is in the early stages, Krawczyk said, adding police are searching for “at least” one more suspect.

The victim of this crime is “OK” and does not require any first aid, he said.

Despite a heavy police presence early this morning in the area of ​​La Rose Avenue from Islington Avenue to Russell Road, Toronto police said they do not believe there is any threat to public safety.

“Because this was a home invasion, we do believe this was a targeted threat,” said Krawczyk.

Nearby Richview Collegiate Institute and Humber Valley Village Junior Middle School were both placed under hold and secure as police investigated. That order has since been lifted at both schools.

Toronto police’s Hold-Up squad is now leading this investigation.

Anyone with further information should contact police at 416-808-7350, or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-8477 (TIPS) or www.222tips.com.
