A former resident of Richmond Hill who is well known to York Regional Police has been arrested in connection to a number of hit and runs in Toronto.

Steven Paul Brunswick, formerly of Windermere Crescent in Richmond Hill, was nabbed by Toronto Police at 3 a.m. near Bathurst and Sheppard Thursday.

The 47-year-old is wanted in connection to a hit and run in which three pedestrians, including a 55-year-old woman, were hit.

In the same incident, a vehicle was rammed into a police car with the officers still in it and charged at another officer.

In 2010, York Regional Police released Mr. Brunswick’s photograph and details of a break in at a Vaughan business.

He was also wanted for several thefts in York Region by Crimestoppers.

Mr. Brunswick is charged with a number of offences including attempted murder and failure to remain at the scene of an accident.
