Peel police say two men have been arrested for attempted murder after an incident that left a pedestrian with life-threatening injuries.

Officers say around 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, the victim was involved in an altercation with the two suspects in the area of Ogden Avenue and Strathy Avenue. All three left the area shortly after.

Just under half an hour later, the two suspects were in a car in the parking lot of a nearby mall at the QEW and Dixie Road.

Police say the two accused then spotted the victim again and the driver, using the vehicle as a weapon, reportedly intentionally struck the victim.

The victim, identified as 20-year-old John Stobbs-Hogarth from Orillia, was taken to Toronto Trauma Centre and remains in life-threatening condition.

Benjamin Steinberg-Harrison, 19, of Mississauga and Rohit Rehal, 20, of no fixed address turned themselves in on Thursday at 12 Division.

They both face one charge of attempted murder.

Anyone who may have dash-cam footage or witnessed the incident are asked to contact Peel police or Crime Stoppers.
