StarMetro Halifax - - HALIFAX - HA­LEY RYAN

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.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about this in­ci­dent is asked to call po­lice at 902-490-5016, or send an anony­mous tips to Crime Stop­pers.
