Sketch released of Mount Uniacke armed robbery suspect

Police have released a sketch of the suspect in an armed robbery in Mount Uniacke.

The East Hants District RCMP say a man entered a service station on Highway 1 in the early morning hours of December 14th and asked for cigarettes.

Police say he then produced a large black knife and asked for all of the money.

Another vehicle entered the parking lot and the clerk told the man to leave, which he did and police say nothing was stolen.

The man got into the passenger side of a vehicle, which was parked on the side of the road, and headed in the direction of Lower Sackville.

He's described as a short, white man in his late 20s with a thin build and some stubble on his face.
