Security images have been released of two suspects after two downtown stores were robbed last year.

Emergency crews were called to the scene on Nov. 25.

It was reported that a man and a woman entered a retail store, picked up two Valentino handbags, valued at over $10,000, concealed them and walked out of the store.

Almost a month later, it’s alleged the same man walked into a jewelry store in the King Street West and Bay Street area and pried open a display case. The suspect allegedly took six Mont Blanc pens, valued at $7,710.

When a staff member confronted the man, he fled the store.

The woman is described as between 5’7″ and 5’10”, 30 to 35 years of age, with a pale complexion. She was wearing knee-length boots, ripped blue jeans and a black jacket.

The man is described as between 5’11” and 6’0″, 35 to 40 years old. He was wearing a long black winter coat, a black baseball cap and prescription glasses.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-5200.
