Police are looking for two men and another who was carrying a hatchet after a string of robberies and smash-ups in the city’s south side Wednesday night.

The spree of crimes began around 4:45 p.m. when a man used a hatchet to smash a window of a BMW parked along Terwillegar Boulevard, police said.

That was roughly 30 minutes before a Honda was broken into on McTaggart Drive, which followed another vehicle window being broken with a hatchet on McLuhan Road, said police.

Police also believe the same group robbed a man of his iPod while he was walking on Tredger Close, and it’s believed the trio attacked another man near 17 Avenue and 65 Street while one suspect brandished a hatchet.

City cops said they’re looking for a light-coloured, older model, rusty four-door Toyota.

All three males are described by police as South Asian males with average builds who were seen wearing baggy clothing.
