A 72 year old woman has been taken to hospital for treatment of minor injuries after a jewellery store robbery in downtown Hamilton.
Police say three suspects entered the Jewel Box on James Street North, just before 10 o’clock on Friday morning, and demanded both money and jewelry from the lone female employee.
One of the suspects assaulted her with what was believed to be a handgun.
Once the bandits had both money and jewelry, they fled the business on foot.
Investigators are looking for three black males. Two are described as thin, about 5-6 and in their twenties, the other of heavy build and in his thirties.
