Officers are investigating an armed robbery that took place in St. Catharines this morning (Dec. 28).

The incident took place around 7:19 a.m., when a male in his 30s left his residence in the Ernest Street and Dorothy Street area to go to work.

The male noticed a car stop in front of his house and a person get out, but thought nothing of it and turned to go back into his house.

“A suspect armed with a black pistol confronted the victim at his doorway and demanded the keys to his blue 2006 Land Rover – Range Rover Sport that was parked in the driveway,” said police. “During the confrontation the suspect struck the victim with the pistol.”
