Still no arrest 2 years after TTC collector shot at Dupont

There still has been no arrest made two years after an armed robber shot a TTC collector at the Dupont subway station.

William Anderson, then 52, was shot in the neck and shoulder at the station on Feb. 26, 2012, after refusing to hand over money to the robber, who police say robbed the same station twice before wearing a mask and carrying a revolver in the left hand.

Toronto police weren’t immediately available for comment on Wednesday, but TTC spokesman Brad Ross told CityNews.ca that no suspect has been caught and the $25,000 reward was still on the table.

Ross declined to provide an update on Anderson out of concern for his safety and privacy.

On the one-year anniversary of the shooting, police said the same suspect was responsible for two other armed heists at Dupont station that occurred in June and October of 2011.

They didn’t know much about the suspect and said the person could be a man or a woman because the shooter was so covered up.

Since the Dupont shooting, the TTC has taken steps to increase the safety of the collector booths, including the installation of bullet-resistant glass.
