21-Year-Old Charged In Roman Candle Attack At Mississauga Gas Station (VIDEO)
Peel Regional Police have arrested 21-year-old Mohammed Mumin for assaulting a gas station employee in Mississauga.
At around 12:30 a.m. on July 4, 2020, Mumin entered the store with another suspect, who remains at large.
In a video shared by police, Mumin can be seen fixing his hair in his cellphone camera before filming the assault.
The unidentified suspect ignites the Roman candle and runs towards the counter, aiming it at the victim while Mumin films.
The two of them corner the victim, giving him no way out.
Police say the victim sustained minor injuries from the attack.
Mumin was arrested and charged with assault with a weapon, mischief endangering life, and forcible confinement.
He'll appear in court on December 15.
Investigators are still on the hunt for the second suspect, who is in his late teens. Anyone with information is asked to contact the 12 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau at 905-453–2121, Ext. 1233.
