Man robbed at gunpoint near Point Pleasant Park
UPDATED 5:40 a.m. Monday
Four masked men beat and robbed a man at gunpoint early Sunday in Halifax.
The victim, a man, 24, told police he was driving alone near Tower Road and Point Pleasant Drive at about
2:45 a.m. when a vehicle pulled out in front of him, forcing him to stop.
Four men wearing masks got out of the other vehicle, demanded he get out of his and pushed him to the ground.
The suspects, one of whom had a firearm, kicked and punched the victim, got cash and fled in a large white vehicle, possibly a truck.
The victim, not seriously hurt, made it to the Queen Elizabeth II Health Sciences Centre on his own and called police.
The robbers are described as black men who are 20 to 30 years old.
Investigators have not yet taken a formal victim statement, said Staff Sgt. Barb Saunders of Halifax Regional Police.
Officers planned to canvass the area Sunday to find potential witnesses, Saunders said.
Investigators will also check with businesses to see if any have surveillance video.
