On Sunday, police said they were called to Victoria Park Avenue and Adair Road at 1:30 p.m. for reports of a struck pedestrian.

When authorities arrived on scene, they found four-year-old Radiul Chowdhury with critical injuries. He was transported to hospital where he remains.

Police allege Chowdhury was hit by a motorcycle and that a male driver and female passenger on the motorcycle fled the scene following the crash.

Investigators later released security images of the two suspects in the hope that the public would help identify them.
