Police seek public assistance to find robbery suspect

Investigators with the General Investigation Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division are investigating an armed robbery that occurred earlier this month in Dartmouth.

Just before 9:30 a.m. on September 7, officers responded to a report of a robbery at the Kabayan Food Mart located at 172 Wyse Road. A man entered the store and asked the employee if he could use the washroom in the rear of the store. When the man returned to the front of the store, he went behind the counter with a knife and demanded money. He grabbed the cash register and was last seen leaving on foot towards Green Road. The employee was not injured and the cash register was located behind the store.

The suspect is described as a white man, approximately 6’, medium build with grey hair and facial scruff. He was wearing a blue Helly Hanson jacket with orange trim, beige pants with paint stains, brown boots or shoes and a baseball hat, and carrying a multi-coloured backpack.
