Oakville Convenience Store Robbed

Two robbery suspects are on the run after an Oakville convenience store was held up at knifepoint.

The incident took place on Feb. 2 at 10 p.m.

That's when a pair of masked males entered the Hasty Market at 2828 Kingsway Dr., approaching the employee behind the counter.

One of the suspects was armed with a small knife, Halton police allege, and the duo demanded cash, cigarettes and cigars.

The suspects fled the gas station and were last seen running northbound toward Kingsway Dr.

No one was injured as a result of this incident, say investigators.
