Approved by: 210 - February 29, 2020

On February 28, 2020 officers with the Crime Suppression Unit, Drug Enforcement Unit and Emergency Services Unit arrested 29-year-old Jihaad Al-Kisadi, 21-year-old Jawad Sami, both of Toronto, and 36 year-old Autumn Johnny of Kitchener for firearm and trafficking offences.

On Wednesday, February 26, 2020 while investigating the incident which took place in the 700 block of Trunk Road, officers discovered Ms. Autumn and Mr. Al-Kisadi are associated with the two males arrested for the incident. They were spoken to and provided false names. Further investigation revealed their names and the fact the two are currently released on conditions not to communicate with one another.

The investigation continued and the two accused were located on the morning of February 28, 2020 in the 700 block of Bay Street. Ms. Johnny was arrested without incident. Mr. Al-Kisadi and Mr. Sami were also located but refused to get out of the vehicle they were in for approximately 50 minutes. As a result of their refusal to comply with officers the Emergency Services Unit was called and arrived on scene in the Ballistic Armoured Tactical Transport. The two were soon arrested without incident.
