Police have released video of two suspects fleeing the subway mugging of a 79-year-old Toronto man with the feisty senior in hot pursuit.

Video cameras providing such images will be standard equipment when the new Toronto Rocket subway cars make their first appearance on the Yonge-Spadina line this fall.

Yusuf Hizel was held down by two men who rifled through his pockets and made off with his wallet as their subway train pulled into Chester station last Saturday. Hizel called out for help as he chased the muggers past the collector’s booth and a TTC employee called 911.

Police found the discarded wallet, minus a small amount of cash, on Danforth Avenue.

All TTC buses, streetcars and Wheel Trans vehicles are equipped with on-board cameras, but current subway cars are not.
