Men sought af­ter down­town mug­ging

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing af­ter a man was robbed at knife­point down­town.

Just be­fore 10 p.m. on Tues­day, po­lice say a 39-year-old man was walk­ing near Wil­son Street East and Mary Street when he was ap­proached by a group of men. One of them had a knife and de­manded his wal­let.

The man handed it over and was not in­jured.

The sus­pects were last seen run­ning north on Mary Street.

Po­lice re­ceived another call a half-hour ear­lier, af­ter a 28-year-old man was ap­proached by four men in a park­ing lot at Bar­ton Street East and Mary Street.

They de­manded that the man empty his pock­ets, but he told them he didn’t have any money. Po­lice say the group fol­lowed him for a short dis­tance but then walked away.

Given the prox­im­ity of the in­ci­dents, po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing them to­gether. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact po­lice or sub­mit anony­mous tips and in­for­ma­tion through Crime Stop­pers by phone at 1-800-222-8477.
