Toronto police are asking for help finding a black Scottish Terrier and a Shih Tzu in a stroller they say they say were dognapped at knifepoint in the city’s downtown.

Police say a person walking the dogs near the Yonge and Dundas Square area at around 11 p.m. last Thursday was confronted by a man and a woman.

They say the man drew a knife and then took off with the two dogs.

Police say Yurield is a black Scottish Terrier and Mari is a golden brown Shih Tzu who was in a stroller at the time.


The first suspect is described as a 25-year-old white man with black hair wearing a baseball hat and police described the second suspect as a white woman in her 30s with brown hair who was wearing a light green long-sleeve shirt and sweatpants.
