RCMP/HRP Integrated Criminal Investigation Division is asking for the public’s assistance in relation to two robberies that occurred in Lower Sackville.
On August 27, shortly before 1 a.m., Halifax District RCMP responded to a report of a robbery at a convenience store on Beaver Bank Rd., near Glendale Dr., in Lower Sackville. RCMP officers learned that a man entered the store, armed with a metal rod, threatened the employee and demanded money. The man then fled the scene on foot with cash.
On September 6, at approximately 3:35 a.m., Halifax District RCMP responded to a report of a robbery at the same convenience store on Beaver Bank Rd. RCMP officers learned that a man entered the business, presented a stick and demanded the contents of the till. The man then fled on foot, with cash, heading towards Glendale Dr.
During both incidents, the store employee was not physically injured.
At this time, investigators believe that the same man is responsible for both robberies. He’s described as white, approximately 5-foot-7 and slim build.
