Police investigating knife point robbery

Belleville Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who robbed a woman at knife point this afternoon.

Police say shortly before 1 p.m. a man approached a woman walking through The Bayview Mall parking lot when he brandished a knife and demanded her belongings.

The male is described as being in his late teens, white, approximately 5’7” in height, thin build with dirty blonde hair and a chinstrap style beard.

He was wearing a black ball cap with a red flat brim, a red lumberjack style plaid zip up coat, washed out blue jeans with a white belt, red shoes with red laces and wearing a silver ring on one of his pinky fingers.

He fled the scene and met up with a second male on Karl St.

Both males were last seen running westbound towards Herchimer Ave.

Anyone with any information on the suspect is encouraged to call the Belleville Police Service or CrimeStoppers.
