A pair of Mississauga teens are among three suspects – already facing robbery charges linked to a Scarborough home invasion – who are accused of attacking a man in the Mavis Rd. and Eglinton Ave. W. area.

Officers made arrests last Wednesday in a joint robbery investigation by Peel and Toronto cops.
The alleged incident took place Dec. 15, 2015.
Wielding expandable batons and a knife, the suspects forced the victim into a vehicle, drove to his home, and made him hand over his debit and credit cards, investigators allege.
The victim was then taken to several ATMs and forced to withdraw cash.
The suspects threatened the victim, told him not to call police, and released him.
Mithun Ratnakumar, 19, of Mississauga, Thapisan Navaneethan, 19, of Markham, and a 17-year-old Mississauga boy – whose identity is protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act – are charged with armed robbery, kidnapping, forcible confinement, two counts of extortion, and break and enter.
