Toronto police have arrested two boys and are looking for a third suspect after an armed car-jacking and gas-and-dash in Rexdale.

Police said just before 10 p.m. Thursday a food app delivery driver had his Hyundai stolen while making a delivery near Islington Avenue and Bergamot Avenue, north of Highway 401, by three armed young males.

A couple of hours later, three males in the Hyundai stopped for gas at a gas station at Kipling Avenue and Rexdale Boulevard and drove off without paying.

Officers in the area spotted the vehicle, which the suspects then abandoned and ran off.

After a brief foot chase, police arrested two suspects but the third male got away.

Police won’t release the ages of the two boys caught but said neither of them are old enough to drive.
