ONTARIO PROVINCIAL POLICE
Members of the Crime Unit from the Collingwood/The Blue Mountains and Huronia West detachments of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are continuing their investigation into a home invasion in Collingwood which resulted in the arrest of two males.
Shortly before 10 p.m. on Dec. 19 2020, three males attended a residence on Fair Street in Collingwood and forced their way into the dwelling by assaulting the resident inside the home. Once inside they proceeded to continue assaulting the resident, tied his hands and feet and threatened him repeatedly with what appeared to be a firearm. The males subsequently made off with an undisclosed amount of cash prior to police arrival.
The victim, who suffered minor injuries as a result of this incident, was able to make his way to a neighbour's residence where police were called. Investigation led to officers at scene locating two of the males in a vehicle on Cameron Street where they were arrested and transported to detachment and held for bail court.
Charged are 20 year-old Antoine Crooks of Scarborough and 43 year-old Steven Imbriglio of Collingwood. Both were charged with:
- Possession of Weapons for Dangerous Purpose,
- Pointing a Firearm, Break and Enter,
- Robbery Using a Firearm,
- Forcible Confinement,
- Assault with a Weapon; and
- Uttering Threats.
Investigation is ongoing at this time with OPP Crime Unit members attempting to locate the third male in this incident as well as information on the Honda Civic in the photos attached.
OPP Crime Unit members advise that there is no threat to public safety.
