Halifax Regional Police investigators are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect in two robberies last weekend in Halifax.
"Shortly after 2 a.m. on Feb. 11, a man entered the Shell Gas Station at 2616 Robie Street and demanded cash. The man left the store on foot with an undisclosed amount of money. No one was physically injured in the incident," police said in a news release.
"Later that day, at approximately 2:05 p.m., police responded to a report of a robbery at the C Shop at 6141 Young Street. A man had entered the store and demanded cash from the cashier. A quantity of money was turned over to the man before he fled the area on foot toward Young Street. There was no weapon seen or indicated and the cashier wasn’t physically injured in the incident."
The same man is believed to have committed both crimes. He is described as white, in his 30s, with a tattoo on the back of his neck, scruffy facial hair and missing teeth. He was wearing a dark-coloured jacket, a dark-coloured tuque, jeans and black shoes.
