At approximately 5:10pm a 17 year old male was in the area of 1000 block South Park Street with 3 other males smoking marijuana. The three males at one point confronted and physically threatened the victim and demanded that he give them his shoes, belt and money. The victim, fearing for his safety, turned over his shoes and belt to the suspects and told them he did not have any cash. The suspects left the area and police were notified of the incident. Halifax Regional Police officers attended the area and met with the victim, and after a short investigation were able to successfully identify the three suspects. The officers were able to quickly locate and arrest all three males and recover the property belonging to the victim.
Two adult males and a one male youth have been held in custody and will appear in court in the morning.
