Police are trying to identify three men who allegedly robbed a couple at gunpoint near Gerrard Street East and Pembroke Street on Monday morning.
A 20-year-old man and 19-year-old woman were walking in the area when they were approached by three men, one with a rifle, police relate in a news release.
The man and woman ran away but the man was chased into an alley where he was allegedly held down at gunpoint and robbed of personal items.
The alleged robbers fled in two cars, described as a red Honda Civic and a black Porshe Macan.
