Quadra Street store robbed at knifepoint

Mar 20 2012

Victoria police tracked down a suspect early Tuesday morning shortly after the Mac’s Convenience Store on Quadra Street near Hillside Avenue was robbed by a man with a knife.

Police said a man entered the store just after midnight and produced a 30-centimetre kitchen knife. He escaped with money and cigarettes.

A 20-year-old suspect was arrested a few blocks away at Haultain and Cook streets.

Investigators have not yet established a connection linking the Mac’s incident to knifepoint robberies early Monday morning at a store in Esquimalt or Saturday morning at a View Street pharmacy.
