A Hamilton man has been arrested after an armed robbery at an East Hamilton variety store.
One suspect remains outstanding and police are asking for the public’s help in identifying him.
On Dec. 13 at 2:45 a.m., police say two males in disguise attended an unnamed variety store.
“Upon entering the store, one male went behind the counter while in possession of a knife as he verbally engaged the lone attendant,” said Hamilton Police Service (HPS). “The second male who was also in possession of a knife approached the front counter. After a demand was made, the males obtained an undisclosed amount of cash and lottery tickets before fleeing on foot.”
“The employee did not incur any physical injuries.”
