The jewelry store in St. Catharines that was victim to brazen daylight robbery on May 11 has now reopened.

One man in Karat Jewellers was shot in the leg (and has since recovered, his son said) while two others in the store were sprayed with a substance believed to be “bear spray” by one of the two suspects. All three were taken to a local hospital by Niagara EMS after the robbery.

Niagara police are still looking for two suspects that were seen fleeing the mall on a motorcycle headed on the QEW Toronto bound.

In a Facebook post (shown below), Karat Jewellers at the Fairview Mall say they were grateful with the support from the community.

Suspect One wore dark clothing and was wearing a yellow full face motorcycle helmet. Suspect Two also wore dark clothing and was wearing a black half motorcycle helmet. Both suspects are considered to be armed and dangerous so if seen, do not approach, contact 911 immediately.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the NRP at (905) 688-4111 dial opt. 3, 1024208.
