Police investigate after robbery in Halifax

At approximately 9:0­0pm this evening two males were leaving the NSLC on Queen St­reet in Halifax, with their recent purch­ase.  Then as they were walking towards Queen Street they we­re approached by a group of five males and one female who de­manded their purchas­e.  When they resist­ed they were threate­ned with violence and felt they were in danger so they handed over their goods.
