Brantford police charged a Six Nations man and County of Brant woman early Monday after two people were robbed of vehicles, one at gunpoint.
On May 28 at around 3:40 a.m., police responded to a disturbance call. Officers learned a man and woman attempted to steal a vehicle but were confronted by the owner. Other patrol officers spotted the suspects and deployed a “stop stick,” causing the front tire to deflate. The vehicle continued to flee the area.
The stolen vehicle was eventually found on fire at 4:10 a.m. on St. George Street.
Meanwhile, Six Nations Police saw another stolen vehicle, also later seen by the Ontario Provincial Police, which was eventually found abandoned in Brantford.
The male and female from the disturbance call appeared to have made their way to an address on Clarence Street, where the accused man pointed a gun at a man and the woman punched him. The 28-year-old male victim received non-life threatening injuries.
The stolen vehicle was located by the Six Nations Police, who assisted in the arrest of a 25-year-old female from Scotland, Ontario. She is currently being charged with eight criminal offences.
A 34-year-old male from Ohsweken, Ontario is being charged with 19 criminal offences.
“The Brantford Police Service wishes to thank all the agencies involved in assisting in this investigation,” said Const. Shane Seibert.
