Toronto police made an arrest Sunday after a man wearing face paint resembling the Joker allegedly stole a tip jar from a restaurant in Kensington Market.

A security video posted by Wafels & More owner Christophe Stevens gathered thousands of views on Facebook. It shows a man in Joker makeup with green-coloured hair speaking to a staff member at the cash register on May 5.

The man then takes a jar of tips and walks out of the store when the staff member turns around.

Toronto police investigated whether Gay Village murder suspect had help from notorious killer Luka Magnotta

Toronto police investigated whether Gay Village murder suspect had help from notorious killer Luka Magnotta Investigators who probed the disappearances of three men from Toronto’s Gay Village explored the possibility that their main suspect had killed and cannibalized Skandaraj Navaratnam with the help of notorious murderer killer Luka Magnotta, according to recently unsealed court documents. The Project Houston task force was launched in November 2012 after Toronto police received a tip from a confidential informant in Switzerland. The informant claimed that a Toronto-area man had mentioned the name "Skanda" to him in a lengthy conversation about "human consumption" on a member's-only cannibalism website.

Stevens filed a complaint with police early Saturday.

Stevens said he had seen the man in his store before, and that other Kensington store owners have reached out to him to share reports of thefts.

“There’s some strange people in Kensington, so it’s not that surprising to me that this happened,” he said. “I’m not sure if it’s intentional that he appears to be dressed like the Joker from the Batman comics, but it certainly caught people’s attention that he looked like that online on Facebook.”

Timothy Lubin, 29, of Toronto, was charged with theft. He is expected to appear in court Monday.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-1400 or call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
