Shortly before 3 a.m. on Sunday, June 9, 2019 uniformed members of the Niagara Regional Police in the city of St. Catharines attended a local sub shop on St. Paul Street West in response to a robbery call. 

Upon arrival and subsequent investigation by members of One District C.I.B. police determined the following.

The male then fled the store last seen eastbound on St. Paul Street towards downtown St. Catharines. The suspect made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and no one was injured during the robbery.
