Durham Police yesterday said multiple suspects are being sought after a male was robbed at gunpoint in Ajax.

On Saturday September 16 at about 10 pm, members of West Division were called to the area of Harwood Avenue North and Rossland Road West, after it was reported that a male suspect robbed the victim of his cell phone at gun point.
