Public's help led to identifying the man
The Ontario Provincial Police has issued an arrest warrant for an individual believed to be involved in Elnaz Hajtamiri’s alleged kidnapping.
On Feb. 16, OPP released four photos of three suspects and a person of interest in connection with the case.
Officers say one of the suspects has been identified as 35-year-old Deshawn Davis of Toronto.
A warrant has been issued for his arrest. Anyone with information on Davis’s whereabouts is asked to contact police.
OPP say they are still trying to identify the other male and female suspects.
Police say they believe these individuals are in the Greater Toronto Area.
Anyone with information about these two is asked to contact OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or through the dedicated tip line at 1-833-728-3415.
As well, police are still looking to identify one, or possibly two, individuals of interest who rented vehicles in December 2021. Officers say they are not suspects, but police would like to speak with them as they may have information related to the case.
A $100,000 joint OPP and York Regional Police reward is still available for anyone with information that will lead to Hajtamiri’s whereabouts.
Police say Hajtamiri, 37 years old at the time, was allegedly abducted around 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 12, 2022, from a residence on Trailwood Place in Wasaga Beach by three suspects dressed in police gear, but not actual uniforms. They fled in what is believed to be a white Lexus RX sport utility vehicle.
Hajtamiri stands approximately 160 cm (5’3″) tall. She is of slim build and had shoulder-length black hair until it had been cut to a shorter length before she was allegedly abducted.
Photos of her and the suspects are available at opp.ca/news/#/mediakit.
