Man arrested after forcing Toronto bus to Tim Hortons

Toronto police say they have arrested a man who hijacked a city bus and demanded he be taken to Tim Hortons, a popular coffee and doughnut chain.

Investigators said Friday the suspect, in his twenties, boarded the bus just before midnight Thursday in York Region, north of Toronto, and forced the driver at knifepoint to bypass several stops before eventually demanding to be dropped off at a Tim Hortons.

Officers arrested the man at the restaurant a short time later. Police say neither the driver nor anyone else on the bus was injured.

The Toronto Transit Commission said the bus driver was "shaken" by what it called a "brazen crime."
