Police Investigate Early Morning Robbery

Hamilton Police continue to investigate an early morning robbery and are asking area residents to check their surveillance cameras and report any suspicious activity.

On Wednesday, April 22, 2020, shortly after 7:00 a.m., Hamilton Police responded to the area of Hughson Street North and Robert Street for a robbery. Once on scene, police spoke with the victim who advised that after parking her car in the underground garage, she was approached by an unknown male who demanded her purse. She turned over her purse and cell phone to the suspect who then fled on foot.

During the incident, the victim noted the suspect was in possession of a dark coloured bar and a knife. The suspect did not raise the weapons towards the victim nor was the victim physically injured.

Through continued investigation, police have obtained an image of the suspect and believe he may have been involved in an unrelated incident in the area of Mary Street and Barton Street East, before the robbery.

Area residents are asked to check their surveillance cameras for any suspicious activity from the early morning hours of April 22 and to contact police.
