On Tuesday, January 10th, 2017 at approximately 5:30 pm, a lone male employee of a business located on Cornwall Rd., in the City of Oakville, just started his shift and was preparing to transport automotive products to the Ford plant located at 1 Canadian Rd., Oakville.

At this point, the driver made observations of an older model Kia Sedona Minivan approaching his position in a quick manner. As the van stopped, one Suspect exited and advanced on him from behind. The Suspect demanded the driver to enter the rear of the trailer, threatening him with a firearm, which was not seen. The driver complied and the truck was driven out of the parking lot by the Suspect.

A 2005 red Kia Sedona similar to this picture was used by the suspects.

As the truck and trailer travelled northbound on Winston Churchill Blvd., the driver who was locked in the trailer, observed a slight gap between in the doors and tried to gain the attention of the public by sliding his hand through and waving his hand, hoping someone would call 911. Unfortunately the truck was being followed by the same Kia minivan, with the driver communicating with the truck driver to stop. One of the Suspects ran to the trailer door and ensured its complete closure, then driven in unknown areas for approximately 60 minutes. The truck then parked at 2560 South Sheridan Way in the City of Mississauga, where the driver was ordered out of the trailer and into another trailer. The driver was ordered to lay on his stomach where his hands and legs were secured and that trailer door closed.

The Suspects were then overheard saying that the load contained within the first trailer was of no use to them and fled the scene, leaving the original truck/trailer and the Victim inside the second trailer.
