RCMP re­lease sketch of Mount Uni­acke armed rob­bery sus­pect

Valley Journal Advertiser - - NEWS -

The East Hants District RCMP has re­leased a sketch of a sus­pect in­volved in an armed rob­bery that oc­curred in Mount Uni­acke in De­cem­ber 2017.

RCMP say the in­ci­dent oc­curred in the early hours of Dec. 14, 2017 at a ser­vice sta­tion on Hwy. 1, when a man en­tered the busi­ness and asked the clerk for cig­a­rettes.

The man al­legedly pro­duced a large, black knife and asked for all of the money.

An­other ve­hi­cle en­tered the park­ing lot and the clerk told the sus­pect to leave, RCMP say.

The sus­pect fled the store on foot and got into the pas­sen­ger side of a ve­hi­cle, which was parked on the side of the road.

The ve­hi­cle headed in the di­rec­tion of Lower Sackville. Noth­ing was stolen and no one was hurt in the in­ci­dent.

RCMP mem­bers made an im- me­di­ate pa­trol to the area and did not lo­cate the sus­pect( s).

The sus­pect is de­scribed as a short white man in his late 20s with a thin build.

He had some stub­ble on his face.

In the ini­tial press re­lease from De­cem­ber, it was also re­ported that the sus­pect was also in­volved in an at­tempted rob­bery at a busi­ness in Lower Sackville the same night, where the clerk at the store man­aged to chase him off with a base­ball bat.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing. Any­one who has in­for­ma­tion about the th­ese in­ci­dents is asked to con­tact East Hants District RCMP at 1- 800- 803RCMP ( 7267), or 902- 632- 2424.
