A trio of suspects near the Westfield Centre swung a skateboard at a man before running off with his dog, police say Wednesday.
On Tuesday around 12:15 a.m. police responded to Jessie and Mission streets — on the sidewalk outside Denny’s — to reports of a robbery. A black-and-white Shih Tzu was taken from its owner.
Three suspects, two women and one man, started a verbal argument with a 62-year-old man, according to police. One of the suspects began swinging a skateboard at the man while another took his dog.
The trio left on foot. No injuries were reported but police do not know if the dog has been harmed.
