Two people have been taken into custody after a knife-point robbery at Celebration Square in Mississauga.

Peel police say it happened around 11 p.m. Sunday at Burnhamthorpe Road and Living Arts Drive, near Confederation Parkway.

The incident occurred just as the Toronto Raptors game was ending. At the time, Celebration Square was hosting a viewing party — the space has been dubbed Jurassic Park West during the NBA Finals.

Police say a man was taken into custody shortly after the alleged robbery. Officers chased the suspect and deployed a Taser, but did not strike the suspect with it. He has since been charged with robbery.

A second person was also arrested.

No one was injured in the incident.
