Greater Sudbury Police are continuing their search for a male suspect wanted in connection to a Friday afternoon robbery in the city's South End.
The incident occurred at a gas station on Centennial Dr. when a man brandished an edged weapon to the female attendant demanding money. The man fled the gas station on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.
Described as white, five foot, seven inches, and wearing a black hooded sweater, dark pants and round sunglasses, the suspect was last seen running through the bushed area behind Lockerby Composite School. As a precaution, Lockerby was placed under lock-down Friday, meaning students were kept inside the building for an hour following the robbery.
Anyone with information is asked to phone Crime Stoppers at 675-TIPS.
Robbery suspect arrested without incident
While investigating an unrelated incident Monday, Greater Sudbury Police discovered the location of a robbery suspect, arresting him without incident.
The 25-year-old man was wanted in connection to two robberies last week, both at the Y&S Convenience Store on King St. The first incident took place Nov. 9. The man, accompanied by a woman, allegedly entered with a gun, demanding money and cigarettes before fleeing on foot.
The second robbery was similar to the first in that the same two suspects supposedly robbed the same store, again fleeing the scene with an undisclosed amount of money and cigarettes. This time, however, the man is said to have used a knife as opposed to a gun.
The man's female accomplice was arrested shortly following the Nov. 11 robbery.
The accused has been charged with tow counts of robbery and two counts of breach of probation.
