Investigators with the York Regional Police Hold-Up Unit have charged a suspect and are seeking at least one more, along with witnesses and video evidence, after armed suspects collided into a man’s vehicle and threatened him with a gun in a carjacking incident in the Aurora.

“On March 28, 2023, at 12:50 p.m., York Regional Police responded to a call for a carjacking in the area of Bathurst Street and McClellan Drive,” said YRP Sergeant Clint Whitney. “The 24-year-old male victim reported he was operating a black 2018 Porsche Cayenne and driving southbound on Bathurst Street when he stopped at an intersection and was struck from behind by a black Ford Escape. A suspect exited the Escape, approached the Porsche and demanded the victim’s vehicle while threatening him with a firearm. The victim complied and the suspect entered the Porsche and drove away southbound on Bathurst Street, with the Ford Escape following.

“A short time later, an astute patrol officer observed a black Ford Escape with fresh damage on it at a gas station in the area of Bathurst Street and Bloomington Road in the City of Richmond Hill. The officer investigated the male driver of the vehicle and he was arrested. Nobody was physically harmed in this incident. The investigators believe this to be an isolated incident.”

The outstanding suspect is described as male, Black, 5’10”, with a slim build, wearing black clothing and a black ski mask.

Haoxiang Feng, 33 years, of Toronto, has been charged with Robbery with a Firearm and Disguise with Intent. He was held for a bail hearing and is next scheduled to appear in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in the Town of Newmarket on March 30, 2023.

The charges have not been proven.

Police urge any witnesses, or anyone who has video footage from the area, to come forward and speak with investigators as soon as possible.
