Three arrested, three sought after man abducted and robbed in Toronto

Daeshawn Grant, Kaelin Sankar and Tanika Galloway have been arrested in connection with an abduction of a man on Nov. 17. TPS/Handout.

Toronto police have arrested three suspects and are seeking three more in an abduction they say took place earlier this month.

Police say a 21-year-old man was approached from behind by four people near the University of Toronto’s downtown campus on Nov. 16.

They say the man was choked and tasered and forced to withdraw money from a bank machine before being taken to an east-end motel, where he was held until he raised his credit limit.

Police say he was released after the suspects emptied his bank account.

Daeshawn Grant, 18, and Kaelin Sankar, 21, are facing charges of using a credit card obtained by crime and committing an indictable offence while 21-year-old Tanika Galloway is facing charges of kidnapping, forcible confinement, robbery and assault.

Police have also identified three other suspects wanted in connection with the crime. Adisoon Admoon, 20, and Arthur McLean are wanted for kidnapping, forcible confinement, robbery, assault and five counts of use of a credit card obtained by crime.

A sixth suspect is described as male, black, between 20 and 25 years of age, six-feet-tall with a skinny build. He was wearing blue faded jeans, a grey/beige jacket, a grey hoodie, a red baseball hat with a white symbol and black shoes.

Police say all three considered armed and dangerous.

Investigators say there may be other victims as well.
