INDIAN BROOK: Just before 10:30 p.m. on April 5, Indian Brook RCMP responded to a call of a robbery that took place at a convenience store on Church St. The two suspects had fled the scene on foot by the time police arrived.

An employee advised that two men with knives entered the store, and one jumped over the counter while the second one brandished a knife. One suspect demanded the employee give him money, took some cigarettes, then both men ran from the store. In addition to the cigarettes, they took a quantity of cash.

No one was hurt during the incident.
