Toronto police are searching for two suspects who allegedly assaulted one person on a TTC bus in North York last month.

On Jan. 31, at around 1 a.m., police were called to a robbery in the area of Steeles Avenue East and Don Mills Road.

When they arrived, officers learned that two male suspects followed an individual onboard a TTC bus.

Shortly after, they approached the victim and allegedly assaulted him.

Police said the suspects allegedly tried to steal the victim’s phone while assaulting him.

The suspects later exited the bus and fled on foot. Police said the victim suffered minor injuries.

On Saturday, police released photos of the two suspects, asking for the public’s help identifying and locating them.

The other male suspect is believed to be five-foot-nine, 160 pounds with a medium build and “chin strap” facial hair.” Police said he was last seen wearing a black “Moose Knuckle” jacket, black pants, black shoes, and carrying a brown paper bag.
