Toronto Police have confirmed that a woman was mugged at Lockwood Road and Dixon Avenue around 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 19.
The woman was walking north on Lockwood with her granddaughter when she was approached from behind by two unknown men, said Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook in an email last night. The suspects allegedly tore a chain from her neck, then ran north on Lockwood and quickly drove away in a small green vehicle.
Although the victim was shaken by the incident, she did not sustain any serious injuries, said police.
