Police release security video of fatal gas-and-dash incident

TORONTO, Ont. – Toronto police have released security footage of the apparent gas-and-dash incident at a west-end Toronto gas station.

The police are looking for Toronto man, Max Edwin Tutiven, 39, wanted on a second-degree murder charge in the incident.

Police believe he is driving a 2000 to 2003 silver or beige, four-door Isuzu Rodeo SUV, which likely sustained front-end damage.

Police add that the vehicle may have stolen licence plates.

Just after 9 p.m. on Saturday September 15, a driver filled his tank with $112.85 in fuel at a Shell gas station.

Jayesh Prajapati, 44, was struck and dragged after attempting to stop the driver, who allegedly fled the station without paying.

Prajapati was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries, where he died.

A post-mortem examination determined the cause of death as multiple blunt force trauma.

A gas station attendant in Mississauga was killed last year, when a driver filled up and fled without paying.
