Toronto Maple Leafs star Mitch Marner had his car stolen and held at gunpoint Monday night.
This was learned by the daily "Toronto Sun".
Police said the crime occurred “at the Cineplex Theater on Queensway Avenue between Toronto and Mississauga. Three individuals stole Marner's black Range Rover using two pistols and a knife.
The Leafs striker was approached by a masked person and did not resist the attack. According to an anonymous source from the "Toronto Sun", it seems that the hockey player was never directly targeted by one of the firearms. The thieves reportedly did not recognize Marner and were simply interested in his car.
This theft occurred just 48 hours after the Maple Leafs lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round of the National League playoffs.
During that series, Marner had two goals and six assists for eight points in seven games.
