2 - 17 Year Olds Rack Up Charges In Attempted Robbery At A KFC In Scarborough

A 49-year-old clerk at a fast-food outlet in Scarborough is recovering from injuries suffered after wrestling a gunman during an attempted robbery on Tuesday, Toronto police said.
Around 4:30 p.m., two youths entered a Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet in the Eglinton and Brimley area, with one of the teens allegedly pointing the gun in the clerk’s direction.
Shortly thereafter, a battle ensued, according to Const. Tony Vella.
“The man actually grabbed the gun and rushed hold of the 17-year-old boy. A round went off, no one was hit. At that point, the accused managed to get the gun back and then threw the gun at the store clerk.”
The youths then allegedly fled the store before being apprehended by officers from 41 Division a few minutes later.
The clerk was treated at a local hospital for injuries that were not considered life-threatening. A female clerk who was also present was unhurt.
The manager of the store refused to comment Wednesday, saying she would only discuss the incident with police.
Two 17-year-olds have been charged with a combined 12 offences, including robbery and weapons charges, and appeared in court Wednesday morning to answer charges. Names of the accused are being withheld under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
