Windsor Police have charged one man with robbery and are looking for another after a convenience store robbery in the downtown core Monday afternoon. Just after noon, police responded to a report of a robbery in progress at a convenience store in the 300 block of Park Street west.
The store clerk told police that two men entered the store wearing scarves over their faces. One of the suspects approached the counter where the clerk was located and the other suspect remained at the door. The suspect who approached the counter was carrying what appeared to be a wooden hockey stick shaft. The suspect slammed it on the counter and demanded all the money from the clerk. The clerk grabbed the stick and the two wrestled with it momentarily. The clerk was able to activate the alarm and the two suspects immediately fled from the store on foot and were last seen running southbound in the alley located next to the store. Nothing was taken from the store and the clerk was not injured as a result of the confrontation.
Through subsequent investigation police were able to identify the suspect who approached the counter carrying the stick, and last evening officers located the suspect standing outside a building in the 300 block of Church Street and arrested him without incident.
Michael Peltier aged 20 years of no fixed address is in custody charged with Robbery and Breaching a Condition of Probation.
The second suspect in this robbery is still outstanding at the time of this writing. He is described as a male, approximately 5’9″, wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt.
Anyone with any information regarding this robbery or the identity of the second suspect is asked to call Windsor Police Investigations at 519-255-6700 ext 4830 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 519-258-TIPS (8477).
