Man due in Halifax court to face charges following alleged robbery at knifepoint
A 19-year-old man is due in a Halifax court this morning to face charges after an alleged robbery at knifepoint.
Police say patrol members responded to a Needs Convenience store just after nine last night.
They say a woman working alone at the store told them a man wearing a mask and holding a knife came in and demanded cash and cigarettes.
They say the employee was not injured and the suspect fled with cash and cigarettes.
They say a teenager known to police was arrested without incident a short time later.
He is due in Dartmouth provincial court to face charges of robbery and breach of a recognizance.
