HAL­I­FAX (CP) — Hal­i­fax po­lice say they used a stun gun to sub­due an unco-op­er­a­tive rob­bery sus­pect.

Po­lice re­sponded to a call Satur­day from an apart­ment in Dart­mouth where a man had en­tered and de­manded money while in­di­cat­ing he was armed with a gun.

Of­fi­cers later en­coun­tered the man in a hall­way in the build­ing and used the stun weapon af­ter he con­tin­ued to ap­proach them.

Po­lice say the of­fi­cers no­ticed that he had a bulge in his side pants pocket.

They say the man, who is from East Pre­ston, was treated at the scene and taken into cus­tody with mi­nor in­juries.

He faces sev­eral charges in­clud­ing rob­bery with a weapon and car­ry­ing a con­cealed weapon and is to ap­pear in court to­day.
