Police plastered a west end neighbourhood with reward posters this week in an attempt to track down a murder suspect from Windsor who may be in Toronto and is known to disguise himself as a woman.
A $10,000 reward is being offered for tips leading to the arrest of 27-year-old Mohamud Hagi, who’s wanted on a charge of first-degree murder. Police allege he shot Luis Acosta-Escobar to death outside a bar on Dec. 22, 2007.
On Wednesday officers distributed reward posters in the Eglinton and Weston Road area.
Part of the reason Hagi has been hard to catch may be due to the fact he’s known to don attire worn by Somali Muslim women, including hijabs and burkas.
A Canada-wide warrant is out for his arrest. Hagi was last seen in 2008 in Toronto.
If you spot him or have any information that could help police, call Crime Stoppers at (416) 222-TIPS.
