Arrest for aggravated robbery

Police are investigating the aggravated robbery of the Hamilton Subway Restaurant located on Greenwood Street on the evening of Saturday 26 July.
Shortly after 7:30pm a man entered the restaurant demanding money and stating that he had a firearm. He was handed some cash and ran off.

Despite making an early arrest in this investigation, Hamilton Police are still interested to hear from any members of the public who may have been in the Greenwood or Bandon Streets areas of Hamilton about 7:30pm on Saturday night.
