The first male suspect is described as being 6'0, wearing a green hooded sweatshirt and dark pants. The second male suspect is described as being 5'10, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and dark pants.
"Both suspects were wearing white ski masks that covered their faces and both carried black backpacks. No other identifying information has been determined at this point."

The Nottawasaga OPP Officers immediately attended the scene and located and arrested the male suspect without incident."

A 23-year-old male from Adjala-Tosorontio, whose name was not released at this post, was arrested and charged with Armed Robbery, Assault and a series of weapon related charges. He was then held for a bail hearing.
