Posted on Thursday July 30, 2020

York Regional Police have charged a man after he was seen walking around a subway station with an air rifle in the City of Vaughan.

On Wednesday, July 29, 2020 shortly after 2 p.m., York Regional Police were called to the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) Vaughan Metropolitan Station located at 3150 Highway 7 West for a report of a man with an air rifle. When officers arrived, the suspect was attempting to enter a gate, but was being denied entry by TTC employees.
