Investigators with the General Investigation Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect in connection with two robberies that that occurred last weekend in Halifax.
Shortly after 2 a.m. on February 11, a man entered the Shell Gas Station located at 2616 Robie Street and demanded cash. The man left the store on foot with an undisclosed amount of money. No one was physically injured in the incident.
Later that day at approximately 2:05 p.m., police responded to a report of a robbery at the C Shop located at 6141 Young Street. A man had entered the store and demanded cash from the cashier. A quantity of money was turned over to the man before he fled the area on foot toward Young Street. There was no weapon seen or indicated and the cashier wasn’t physically injured in the incident.
The same man is believed to be involved both incidents. He is described as white, in his 30s with a tattoo on the back of his neck, scruffy facial hair, missing teeth, and wearing a dark coloured jacket, a dark coloured toque, jeans and black shoes.
