Suspect sought in Tillsonburg robbery
Provincial police say they began investigating last month after hearing from other law enforcement agencies that drugs were being imported in vehicles shipped to Canada by rail.
Oxford County OPP are on the lookout for a man known as “Cody” after an alleged assault and robbery on Broadway in Tillsonburg.
Police say the altercation took place just after 8:00 p.m. on Thursday April 12. A police investigation revealed two adult men involved in the incident had met earlier in the evening. They then became involved in a physical altercation in the walking trail behind the Burger King restaurant on Broadway. Police say the suspect assaulted the victim and demanded money. The suspect obtained a small amount of money and then ran southbound on Broadway, say police.
The victim suffered minor injuries as a result of the altercation and reported it to police.
The suspect is identified as a white man who goes by the name Cody. He’s roughly 6 feet tall and 25 to 35 years old. He has dark, medium length curly hair and was last wearing a grey sweatshirt and jeans – and is possibly missing an upper tooth.
The investigation is continuing.
