A Toronto man has been charged with fraud after allegedly selling fake tickets to the Tragically Hip concert in August.

The tickets are a hot item given that the upcoming tour is expected to be the Tragically Hip?s last after the band?s frontman, Gord Downie, was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.

A woman purchased tickets to the show from the man in Scarborough earlier this month, contacting the seller through a Kijiji ad. When the ad remained online after she purchased the tickets, she contacted the seller again using a different name and was shown a photo of tickets using the same section, row and set numbers.

The woman arranged another meeting with the seller and brought Durham Regional Police officers with her. When they arrived, the seller attempted to flee the scene and was arrested following a brief struggle.

Coleman Ward, 27, of North York has been charged with fraud under $5,000, escape custody, resisting arrest and possession of proceeds of crime. None of the charges have been proven in court.

Anyone who believes they may have purchased fraudulent tickets is asked to contact their local police department.
