A major development has emerged in regards to Toronto Maple Leafs star Mitch Marner's carjacking investigation.

In 2022, Toronto Maple Leafs standout Mitch Marner fell victim to an armed robbery while outside a movie theatre. Nearly a year later, arrests were made in connection with the crime. However, there's now a surprising twist as the alleged perpetrators might go unpunished.


Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mitch Marner was robbed in an armed carjacking outside a movie theatre in May 2022.
Police announced a pair of arrests nearly a year later, citing months of «non-stop legwork» investigating the robbery.
Now, court documents show a Crown attorney has withdrawn all charges against both men, telling a court there wasn't "a reasonable prospect of conviction."



According to recent reports, the Crown attorney has withdrawn all charges against the two men arrested, citing a lack of "a reasonable prospect of conviction." This development comes as a blow to Marner, especially amid speculation about his potential departure from Toronto via trade.

Asked Friday about the status of the case, Toronto police spokesperson Stephanie Sayer said, «the investigation on the third suspect is ongoing.»

Despite this setback, there may still be hope for justice as Toronto Police are investigating a third potential suspect. Further updates on the case are expected in due course.

Stay tuned for more updates regarding this story.
