Fourteen Arrested in Park Swarming Case

Puzzling news about "swarming" robberies: in the media stories about the arrests made on August 28, Dufferin Grove Park is mentioned first. But police told City Councillor Adam Giambrone last week that only ONE of the attacks took place at Dufferin Grove. All the rest were at Christie Pits.

Dufferin Grove staff are trying to go to the bail hearings so they can see who was arrested. That way, if any of them come to the park, the staff can report them for breach of bail conditions. If anyone knows more about these events, please let us know. ....416-392-0913 or

14 arrested in park swarmings

Published: August 29, 2007

Police have arrested 14 people in connection with a series of alleged swarming robberies in the city's west end over the past several weeks.

Toronto Police will hold a news conference this afternoon to provide details of the arrests of the 14, who are all young offenders.

Over the past few weeks, a group of youths have been confronting victims and robbing them of their valuables, including cash, i-Pods, laptops and cellphones.

These robberies occurred mainly in Dufferin Grove Park and Christie Pits Park.
