Two males arrested in South River arm robbery
The Trinity Conception RCMP have made a pair of arrests in connection with an armed robbery at a South River business on May 16.
Police apprehended two males, ages 15 and 16, on charges of robbery, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and being disguised with the intent to commit an offence.
The two appeared in provincial court in Harbour Grace on May 22.
Shortly after 11 p.m. on May 16, it’s alleged the two males entered Marshall’s Fish Market wearing masks and brandishing knives. The pair demanded cash and cigarettes from the clerk. There were no injuries in the incident.
Due to the age of the young persons and where the matter is before the court, police will not be releasing any further information.
