No injuries after man robbed on bus

At approximately 7:47 pm Halifax Regional Police responded to a report of a robb­ery that had taken place on the MacDonald Bridge shuttle bus approximately 10 mi­nutes earlier.  HRP met with the 18 year old victim who repo­rted that as the sus­pects were exiting the bus on the Halifax side of the bridge, one of the suspects intimidated him in­to believing that he would be assaulted if he did not hand over the necklace he was wearing.  The vi­ctim handed over the necklace and the su­spects fled the scen­e.  They were descri­bed as being: 1) as a black youth, 15-18 yrs old, 5’10-6’0 feet tall wearing ora­nge Jordan sneakers and a grey hooded sw­eater; 2) The second man was described as having a muscular build and wearing a grey hooded sweater; 3) A woman described as a heavy set with wavy/curly hair, dressed in all black.

There were no injuri­es in this matter.  HRP patrol members arrested the 3 suspec­ts in the 2000 block of Brunswick St, Ha­lifax.  The three ha­ve been released from custody based on the wishes of the vic­tim, however, the in­vestigation is conti­nuing.
