The Ottawa police robbery unit is asking the public for help to identify a suspect in a reported armed robbery at a store on Hobin Street last week.
A man with a handgun is alleged to have demanded cash and cigarettes from a clerk at about 3:16 a.m. on April 13, the Ottawa Police Service said in a release Wednesday.
The clerk handed over the items and the suspect fled. No one was injured.
The man — who wore a full-face skeleton mask — is described as white and tall with a slim build. He wore a white hooded sweatshirt with “NY” in dark, possibly blue, block letters, white or light grey track pants and red shoes. He carried a grey bag with black trim.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the robbery unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 5116.
Anonymous tips can be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or crimestoppers.ca.
