The suspect demanded the victim’s coat and stated he was in possession of a weapon. The victim was physically accosted and the suspect obtained his winter coat and running shoes. The suspect fled the scene in the sedan.
The victim was not physically injured and a weapon was not seen.

This past January, several street robberies targeting high-end winter coats occurred in the downtown area and west Hamilton neighbourhoods. The parties responsible were identified and criminally charged.
Although this is the first recently reported incident, Hamilton Police are reminding the public to take measures to avoid being a victim of a street robbery:
Do not walk alone, especially after dark
Follow the safest route possible. Avoid shortcuts and deserted areas. Try to keep to well lit, busy streets.
Walk with a purpose and be aware of your surroundings.
It is also important to report a robbery to the police as soon as possible. The faster police can respond, the greater the chance of an arrest. If you are a victim or witness a robbery in progress, call 911 immediately.
