Ottawa Police say they've identified a man, whom they describe as a person of interest, as they investigate a robbery on Hobin Street in Stittsville.

Police say, at around 10:30 p.m. Thurs., Feb. 6, 2020, a lone man armed with a rifle entered a store on Hobin Street, near Sittsville Main Street, and allegedly stole cash, cigarettes, and lottery tickets.

A suspect is already facing charges in connection with the robbery.

A short time after the robbery, police say a man entered a business on Hazeldean Road and tried to redeem some of the stolen lottery tickets.

Police said Wednesday morning they had identified the person of interest.

The investigation continues. No other charges have been announced.
