Police look for robbery suspect after woman awakes to find intruder in home
Police are looking for a suspect in an alleged robbery where a woman awoke to find a man in her home demanding money.
According to a Halifax Regional Police release, at 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, patrol members responded to the 0-100 block of Albro Lake Rd. for a report of a man who had broken into a residence and assaulted a woman.
The woman awoke when she heard a man inside her residence “demanding money,” police said. A physical fight occurred between the two where both the man and the woman struck each other with objects.
The man fled when a neighbour yelled out to the victim after hearing the disturbance. The woman was treated at the scene by paramedics for nonlife-threatening injuries.
Police spokesperson Const. Carol Mcisaac said on Monday nothing was taken before the suspect ran from the residence.
The suspect is described as a white man, about 5-foot-10 and 160 pounds. He was wearing a thick hooded sweatshirt with the hood up and drawn tightly around his face. The man was last seen running toward Albro Lake Rd.
