MOUNT UNIACKE, N.S. – The East Hants District RCMP has released a sketch of a suspect involved in an armed robbery that occurred in Mount Uniacke in December 2017.
RCMP say the incident occurred in the early hours of Dec. 14, 2017 at a service station on Hwy. 1, when a man entered the business and asked the clerk for cigarettes.
The man allegedly produced a large, black knife and asked for all of the money.
Another vehicle entered the parking lot and the clerk told the suspect to leave, RCMP say.
The suspect fled the store on foot and got into the passenger side of a vehicle, which was parked on the side of the road.
The vehicle headed in the direction of Lower Sackville. Nothing was stolen and no one was hurt in the incident.
RCMP members made an immediate patrol to the area and did not locate the suspect(s).
The suspect is described as a short white man in his late twenties with a thin build. He had some stubble on his face.
In the initial press release from December, it was reported that the suspect was also involved in an attempted robbery at a business in Lower Sackville the same night, where the clerk at the store managed to chase him off with a baseball bat.
The investigation is ongoing.
Anyone who has information about the these incidents is asked to contact East Hants District RCMP at 1-800-803-RCMP (7267), or 902-632-2424.
