Police believe 2 robberies involved same perpetrators
Hamilton police are asking the public for help identifying two men wanted in connection with two street robberies in Ancaster and on Hamilton Mountain.
On Monday around 11 p.m., two men in a dark-coloured vehicle approached a victim in the area of Southbend Road and West 4th Street, allegedly threatening him and robbing him of his sunglasses.
Less than two hours later, around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, police believe the same two men approached another victim near Stonehenge Drive and Joshua Avenue, threatened him and stole his backpack and headphones, before fleeing in a dark-coloured vehicle.
In both robberies, one of the men said he had a concealed weapon, but no weapon was seen.
The first suspect is described as being six-foot, 17 to 20 years old, with a “medium complexion” and wearing a grey hoodie with black patches.
The second suspect is described as black, six-foot-two, with a thin build and curly black hair, wearing a grey hoodie with black patches.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Mountain station detectives at 905-546-3851. To provide information anonymously, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477.
