Hamilton police are looking for a pair of thieves after an incident at a convenience store on the mountain.
Police say a woman walked into the store on Fennell Avenue and East 28th last night at about 9 o’clock and asked to buy a carton of cigarettes. As she stood at the counter to pay, a man walked in and grabbed the carton off the counter.
The suspect then fled and the female followed. When the store clerk followed, he quickly realized that the suspect and female knew each other.
The clerk was then warned to stay away or he would get hurt and saw what he thought to be a hammer in the suspect’s hand and backed off.
The two suspects were last seen leaving in a red vehicle. The female is described as white, about 60 years old, with reddish brown hair. The male is described as white, between 25-40 years old.
