Arrest Warrant Issued For Man In Elnaz Hajtamiri Kidnapping Case

KAWARTHA LAKES-The OPP has issued an arrest warrant for a man believed to be involved in Elnaz Hajtamiri’s kidnapping.

The OPP released four photos of three suspects and a person of interest in connection with the kidnapping on February 16th and they say thanks to the public’s support, one of the suspects has been identified as Deshawn Davis, 35-years-old of Toronto, Ontario. A warrant has been issued for his arrest. Anyone with information on Davis’s whereabouts is asked to contact police.

The OPP is still looking for the public’s help in identifying the other male and female. Police believe these individuals are residing in the Greater Toronto Area. Anyone with information about these individuals is asked to contact the OPP immediately at 1-888-310-1122 or through the dedicated tip line at 1-833-728-3415.

In addition, police are still looking to identify one, or potentially two, individuals of interest who rented vehicles in December 2021. They are not suspects in the kidnapping, but police would like to speak with them as they may have information related to this case. A $100,000 joint OPP and York Regional Police reward is still available for anyone with information that will lead to Elnaz’s whereabouts.
