Supermarket held up; cash taken, robber escapes, car driven by lone female.



By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON. August 8, 2013.  A lone male suspect entered the FreshCo grocery store on Upper Middle Road in the early afternoon where he demanded money from the cashier. 

Reasonable quality video will make it easier to catch this person, believed to have held up the FreshCo on Upper Middle Road.

He was given a quantity of cash and then fled the store.  Staff followed the male into the parking lot where he produced a knife, warned them and then made good his escape. 

The suspect was last seen getting into grey 4 door motor vehicle being driven by a female and driving southbound on Walkers Line towards the QEW.

The male is described as follows:

Male, white, 5’10” – 6′ tall, medium build, 25-30 years old, several days facial hair growth, wearing a white “hoodie” with stripes, white shoes and blue jeans.  Police were able to recover a reasonable quality image of the male fleeing the store.


Is this anyone you recognize?

The male is presumed to be armed and members of the public should not approach this individual.  Immediately call the Police and report his location.

    This sounds like that:

    On August 8th, 2013 at approximately 3:00 p.m., a lone man entered a grocery store Queenston Road at Nash Road South and demanded money from one of the clerk’s. The suspect kept one hand in his pocket during the robbery leading the victim to believe that he was armed. At no time was a weapon seen. The clerk advised the suspect that she was unable to open the register. The suspect then grabbed some merchandise demanding her to ring it in so that the register would open. When this did not happen the suspect became flustered and left the store empty handed. The suspect fled the store on foot and jumped into an awaiting vehicle. The vehicle is described as silver, 2 door Grand Prix or Grand Am. The vehicle was being driven by a white female. The vehicle was last seen driving eastbound on Queenston Road. The suspect is described as a white male, 5’8″ – 5’10”, medium build, 30-35yrs, with facial hair growth light brown. He was wearing a white hoodie with black stripes, jeans and white running shoes. The Hamilton Police BEAR Unit continues to investigate.
