The Saint John Police Force is seeking the public’s assistance in connection with an armed robbery on the east side of the city.

According to a news release from police, two male suspects allegedly pulled a knife on an employee and stole a quantity of merchandise from a business in the 500-block of Westmorland Road on Tuesday around 8:05 p.m.

Police say the 27-year-old victim observed two male suspects enter the business at roughly 7:25 p.m.

The two suspects went through the business and filled carts with merchandise, and as they attempted to leave without paying, the victim intervened and one of the males allegedly presented a knife in a threatening manner, said the release.

Police say the suspects left the scene in a grey Ford Fusion that did not have any license plates.

The first suspect was described as a shorter male wearing a black hat, a pair of black sunglasses, black sweater, black shorts and black and green sneakers.

The second male was taller with a heavier build, wearing a grey hat and a black jump suit.

Investigators are asking anyone with information or video footage of the incident to contact the Saint John Police Force at 1-506-648-3333, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
