A male youth was seriously injured in a stabbing after a public meet-up to sell a pair of headphones that police say resulted in the victim being ambushed in an attempted robbery.
Durham Regional Police were called to a plaza in the area of Kingston Road and Whites Road just before noon on Monday, Nov. 13, following reports of an armed person.
A male youth allegedly planned to meet another male to sell a pair of headphones.
Police said the victim was at the meet-up point and was surrounded by four males who attempted to rob him at knife-point.
The male victim suffered a stab wound to the hand before all suspects fled the area. Police said the youth was transported to a local hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
Three of the four male suspects wore a face mask or covered their faces at the time of the incident. They remain wanted by investigators.
