One night, one hour, three attempted robberies. And Halifax police now say they're connected.
In a news release Friday afternoon, Halifax Regional Police said they believe three attempted armed robberies in the municipality that they reported Friday morning are connected.
At 10:22 p.m., police say a man with a gun demanded cash from the clerk at a business on Albro Lake Road in Dartmouth.
“The clerk made an emotional exclamation and the suspect fled the store (while) another customer chased him,” a police statement reads.
No one was injured.
Thirty minutes later, police were called to a robbery in progress at a business on the Bedford Highway.
A man with a firearm pointed a gun at a clerk and demanded money. The clerk said no and the suspect left empty handed.
The last attempted robbery happened at 11:30 p.m. on Windmill Road in Dartmouth.
Police say a man tried to get into a store by pulling on a door locked by the clerk.
He eventually gave up and left.
The suspect in all three incidents is described as a white man, six feet tall, skinny and wearing all black clothing and metallic blue mask.
