Canada 'I was very nervous': Teen describes heart-pounding moment when he was mugged by 4 people
Verdict expected in case of Alberta teen charged with shooting German tourist
CALGARY — An Alberta judge is expected to rule today whether a youth is guilty of shooting a German tourist in the head on a highway west of Calgary last year. The teen from the Stoney Nakoda First Nation, who cannot be identified because he was 16 at the time, is charged with aggravated assault and recklessly discharging a firearm during an offence. Provincial court Judge George Gaschler heard that Horst Stewin was driving a black SUV on the First Nation's land with his family when someone in a passing car shot him. His vehicle veered off the highway and crashed into some trees.
What was supposed to be a fun night out with friends turned into a scary night for a North York teenager, and has left residents of one Toronto-area community on high alert.
The teen said he had just left McDonald's on Avenue Road north of Lawrence on Friday, Oct. 11 when he was mugged by four males.
"As soon as they came up to me, I [thought] they could have weapons, they could try and beat me up," he told CBC Toronto.
"I kind of like just gave them everything, do what they said because I didn't really want to get hurt," he added.
"I'd rather lose maybe some valuable items like a phone and stuff than risk me getting hurt."

Following the robbery, the boy borrowed someone's phone and immediately called his father and the police.
His father, who also spoke to CBC News, said he was able to change his son's password, lock the phone, and started a location trace using an app called Find My iPhone.
"It was pretty disturbing. I was concerned about his safety," the father said.
"Once we knew that he was safe, we were just really worried about what impact it would have on him and whether they'd catch the guys."
The man said while his son was not hurt physically, he's rattled.
Boys in Alberta schools get assaulted, threatened, robbed and slurred more often than rest of Canada
An unprecedented poll of Canadian youth finds male students in Alberta experience assault, theft, homophobic slurs and threats with a weapon significantly more often than in the rest of Canada."Are you scared of it?" he recalls the fellow teenager saying, which made him nervous.
"He hasn't been back to the place that it happened. He doesn't want to hang around that neighbourhood, He's a little bit worried about school. He's worried about the guys that did it seeing him on the street somewhere," the father said.
"So, everyone's not fine. No one's hurt but everybody is a little rattled."
Meanwhile, Toronto police told CBC News that teenagers are being swarmed in a small radius in North York. The attackers are demanding their phones, shoes and other valuables.
They say there have been three other very similar robberies in an eight-day period. In all of them, six to 10 people, wearing masks, and armed with a knife, approached groups of teens after they were leaving the McDonald's at 1890 Avenue Rd. north of Lawrence Avenue West.
Residents say there have been more robberies that have not been reported to police, and Mike Colle, who represents their ward, says several concerned parents have contacted him.
He is urging residents to avoid going out late at night and especially in the Avenue Road and Lawrence area.
"Don't go out until we arrest these thugs. It is a very serious situation because [these are] armed robbers with knives and anything could happen," Colle told CBC News.
"Be very careful when you leave an establishment that you could be followed."
Colle said the police's major crime unit is involved as well as undercover officers.
"The police are taking it very seriously. The police are in full force with the community response unit. Even Toronto's major crime unit is fully deployed here trying to catch these thugs that are perpetrating these robberies."
