Brampton men facing charges in armed hold-up at Swiss Chalet

Two Brampton men are facing charges in connection with the armed robbery at Swiss Chalet in Georgetown last month. The robbery occurred Feb. 17 at approximately 11:50 p.m. when a man pointed a gun at an employee behind the restaurant and ordered him back inside. Once inside the store the three suspects ordered the employee and three other employees into the walkin refrigerator, removed an undisclosed amount of money from the store safe and cash drawer, then fled. Approximately 20 minutes after they left the employees forced open the refrigerator door, got out, and called police. Halton Police worked with Peel and York Regional Police Services on the investigation as it was believed the suspects in the Swiss Chalet robbery were active in all three regions. On Wednesday (March 14) Peel Police arrested four men in connection with four recent home invasion style robberies in the Brampton area, and two of the men were later charged with the Swiss Chalet robbery. Charged with robbery, assault with a weapon, wear disguise, four counts of forcible confinement and conspiracy is Patrick Kelleher, 20, and Horrainne Bennett, 19, both of Brampton. Police are looking for a third suspect.
