Police Hunt Burlington Robbery Suspect

A Burlington gas station was robbed at knifepoint and Halton police are asking the public to help identify a suspect.

It happened on June 25 at 3:15 a.m.

The male suspect went to the Circle K Esso gas station at 1170 Guelph Line, confronting an employee who was standing outside the entrance.

He ordered the employee inside and demanded money and cigarettes.

But a Tim Horton’s employee in the same building saw what was happening and phoned police from a locked backroom.

The suspect fled on foot with cash and smokes.

He was last seen running southwest from the gas station.

Officers, including a police dog, responded a track came up empty.

Police are looking for a white male in his late teens or early 20s with a slim build.
