Police request public assistance to identify robbery suspect – Cole Hbr

Police are investigating a robbery that happened yesterday morning.


Just after 7 a.m., a man entered a home on Bissett Rd., then sprayed the victim with what is believed to be ‘bear spray’. The suspect then took an amount of money, threatened to stab the victim, and fled on foot from the home. The victim didn’t see a weapon other than the spray. The victim was treated by EHS at the scene.


This was not a random act and both men were known to each other.


Police are asking anyone with information about this incident to contact Halifax District RCMP or Halifax Regional Police at902-490-5020. Should you wish to remain anonymous, citizens can also call Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), text TIP202 + your message to ‘CRIMES’ (274637) or by secure online tips at
