THUNDER BAY – Thunder Bay Police are asking for assistance in identifying a male responsible for a robbery at the Mac’s Convenience Store located on West Arthur Street.
On June 24, 2018, at approximately 3:30 am a masked male entered the store with a hatchet and demanded money and cigarettes from the 24-year-old male clerk. The male left on foot westbound on Arthur Street. The employee was not injured.
Officers searched the area for the suspect but he was already gone from the immediate area. During this search, the weapon believed to have been used in this incident was located in the vicinity and seized by officers.
The suspect is described as a male who is approximately 5’7″ with a thin build. He was wearing a two-toned red striped hoodie and black pants. His face was covered with a black and white mask.
There have been a number of robberies of Mac’s stores in Thunder Bay over the past eight months. Sources tell netnewsledger that the Crown and Judges at the Thunder Bay District Court House are seeking stiffer sentences to serve as a real deterrent to these crimes.
