On Sunday, July 15th at about 2 PM, Lorne Avenue Mini-Mart was robbed. The variety store is located on the corner of English Street and Lorne Avenue. Store owners say a masked man walked in, holding a gun and demanded some cash. The owners, who have been victims of robbery several times in the past, were shocked that they were held at gunpoint during the day and with a gun.

They went onto mention that when they have been robbed in the past, it has always been at night and generally with a knife, never during the day and never with a gun, let alone both together.
The amount of cash stolen was undisclosed and store owners declined any further comments.
The robber is still at large. If you have any further information, please contact Crime Stoppers at 519-661-8477
