Police have identified a male suspect and are hunting a female accomplice after a Toronto dad used the Internet to track down his stolen baby stroller.

The man being sought by police and his sister were charged after a foiled armed robbery attempt of poppy drive money and struggle with an 84-year-old veteran at a Scarborough Royal Canadian Legion Hall last Nov. 12.

Michael Pavlova, 25, is wanted on charges of theft under $5,000 and possession of stolen property, and an unidentified woman with short brown hair with blond streaks is wanted as an accomplice.


Pavlova and his sister, Bianca, 27, who bears a resemblance to photos of the female accomplice in the stroller case, were charged with robbery and conspiracy to commit an indictable offence. Pavlova was also charged with using an imitation firearm and failing to comply with a probation order. Both siblings are awaiting trial on the legion robbery.

Lindsay Taylor’s $750 stroller was stolen from the front porch of his Danforth-area home last Friday. The father of two found an identical one listed on Craigslist the next day and offered to meet the sellers. When they arrived, he recognized chalk marks his son had made and seized the stroller.
