Niagara police are investigating an armed robbery at a “cash and services” business in St. Catharines.
It happened around 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday near Geneva St. and Carlton Rd.
Police say two men, one armed with a firearm, entered the business and demanded cash from two employees.
The staff members handed over an undisclosed amount of money and the suspects fled the store.
A police canine unit was brought in to search the area but could not locate the thieves.
The first suspect is described as black, five-foot-ten, with a medium build and was wearing a light coloured jacket, a dark coloured striped hooded sweathshirt, dark coloured pants with a white stripe down the side and white gloves.
The other male was roughly six-feet tall, with a medium build and was wearing a dark coloured coat, a blue hooded sweathshirt and dark coloured pants.
Anyone with information that could help police with the investigation is asked to contact investigators at 905 688-4111, ext. 9628.
