Halifax Regional Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man in connection with a robbery at a business in Bedford’s Sunnyside Mall on Thursday afternoon.
Police say a man with a gun robbed the Running Room just before 1:30 p.m. He entered the store, produced the gun and then fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money.
A staff member was assaulted in the robbery, police say, with paramedics called to the scene to check on her.
Police have since released an image of the suspect at the mall and say he is considered armed and dangerous and shouldn’t be approached.
Anyone who can identify him or know of his whereabouts is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers.
