Investigators with the York Regional Police Hold-Up Unit are seeking public assistance in identifying suspects following an armed robbery in the City of Markham.

On Monday, April 8, 2019, at approximately 10:20 a.m., officers responded to reports of an armed robbery at a watch store located on Enterprise Boulevard, in the area of Warden Avenue and Highway 407.

Officers learned that a tow truck crashed into the building smashing the glass. A second vehicle pulled up and four suspects got out armed with firearms. The suspects entered the store through the smashed glass and stole a quantity of watches then fled in the vehicle they had arrived in.

The suspects were described as male, wearing dark coloured clothing and armed with firearms.

 No one was physically injured during the incident.

The investigation is ongoing.

Investigators from the Hold-Up Unit remind business owners of the importance of maintaining and updating video surveillance equipment. Quality images help to identify suspects, can aid in arrests and have a tremendous impact during court proceedings.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the York Regional Police Hold-Up Unit at 1-866-876-5423, ext. 6631, or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-tips or leave an anonymous tip online at
