Halifax Regional Police are investigating a robbery that happened Friday night at the Shoppers Drug Mart in the city’s Fairview neighbourhood.

Officers say they responded to a report along Joseph Howe Drive, with the call describing a woman in her late 20s exiting a store without paying for items.

When security staff at the shoppers asked the woman to turn over the items alleged to be stolen, she threatened them with a needle, thrusting it in a stabbing motion. 

Police say there are no reports of injuries in the incident.

Police described the woman as white, standing approximately 5-foot-6-inches with a thin build and shoulder-length, strawberry-blonde hair.

They say she was wearing a black Nike baseball hat, a black jacket with a black shirt underneath, blue jeans, and thick-rimmed glasses.

Police add the suspect left the store in a silver or white SUV.
