Robbers tied up staff at Wild Water Kingdom, police say
A group of Wild Water Kingdom employees were counting cash when they found themselves face to face with a group of gun-toting assailants on the weekend.
Peel Regional Police say it was about 5 a.m. Sunday when a group of four males made their way into an office area at the water park, where employees were counting cash that came in during an event.
The robbers forced a group of five employees to sit down and then tied their hands behind their backs.
Police say the suspects fled the scene with cash, but the amount has not been publicly disclosed.
Following the robbery, the water park stayed closed throughout the day on Sunday. It reopened on Monday.
On Monday, police released a description of the four men they are seeking in connection with the robbery:
- Police describe the first suspect as a 5'7" black male with an average build, who is believed to be 20 to 25 years old. He carried a silver handgun and wore tan pants, a grey hoodie, as well as a blue-and-white bandana over his face.
- The second suspect is described as a six-foot black male, 20 to 25 years old, with a thin build. He wore a blue baseball cap, a grey hoodie, blue jeans and a bandana over his face as well. Police say he had a black handgun.
- Police say the third suspect is a 5'8" black male, who weighs about 180 pounds. Like the first two suspects, he is believed to be 20 to 25 years old. He had a black-and-silver handgun and wore blue jeans, a light-coloured hoodie with dark sleeves, a dark baseball cap, as well as black shoes with white soles. He wore a bandana over his face.
