The following incidents were reported to police by Woodbine Park Neighbourhood Watch Street Captains:

Report from Sarah Ashbridge NW Captain Friday June 17, 2016 – Garage Break-in & Home Entry

Prior to going to bed at 1230am the residents heard voices in their back garden and went out on our third floor balcony and saw three people near the back door.  They screamed “Get off my property the police are coming”  then saw 3 people running to the side gate and run to the street.   They discovered their back door (to the house) was wide open and perpetrators had also entered the garage and stole from their garage fridge a $100 filet mignon and two cases of imported beer and some other food and pop.  911 was immediately called and the police came by around 1 am.  They looked around and made a report.  A second pair of police came by around 3 am and took some pictures.  It was unfortunate that their garage door and back door to the home were unlocked as they are typically very diligent about locking up but each one thought the other had locked up.


Report from Winners NW Captain Friday June 17, 2016 – Garage Break-in

Garage was broken into but they decided not to take a damaged bicycle.


Report from Joseph Duggan/Boardwalk Captain Tuesday, June 14, 2016 – Garage Break-in & Bicycle Thefts

Garage break-in.  The perpetrator(s) came into the backyard via the side gate.  The homeowners, who had left their children with an adult family member and had gone away on vacation, did not report whether their sitter had unknowingly left the door leading from the backyard to the garage door unlocked, or whether the thief had broken a window pane and reached in to unlock the door from the inside.  Taken were the two parents’ bikes and their son’s Spiderman bike.

Young Female Accosted

February 20, 2015 in Neighbourhood Alerts Blog, Neighbourhood Watch Blog

This is a report from a Woodbine Park resident regarding an incident earlier this week:

My daughter is home from University for Reading Week. She went out to

see a friend and was coming home around 11:45 by bus. She got off on

Lakeshore (at the foot of Joseph Duggan) and was accosted by a man who

proceded to follow her home. She was very afraid and didn’t want him to

know where she lived so she walked a different way and headed to Queen

at a fast pace. He kept asking her questions such as “where do you

live” “do you live with your family” and told her that he had drugs and

$20,000 in his pockets and that he needed somewhere to hide it. She

managed to ditch him on Queen but came home by a circuitous route just to be safe.

She was terrified. We called the police at 12:30 am and they sent a car

to search the area. They also stopped several west-bound streetcars as

she thought he might have got on a streetcar going that direction. She

was able to give the police a fairly good description of the man.

Please pass this along as I know there are lots of area kids and

residents who are out at that hour and who use the TTC. I often walk my

dog later at night by myself. I will ensure that my kids use a buddy

system from now on.
