Dog missing after carjacked vehicle found

Man arrested near Victoria Park and Eglinton, but 'Sammy' not in car

A dog that had been in a carjacked vehicle is missing — despite the car having been recovered.

The Samoyed named Sammy was inside its owner’s white 2013 Mercedes-Benz when the car was taken this morning at about 1 a.m. in the area of Victoria Park Avenue and Ellesmere Road, police say.

Police found the car and arrested a man near Victoria Park and Eglinton Avenue East, but they believe the dog had been let out of the vehicle in the area.

They are asking for the public’s help in locating it.
