Cape Breton Regional Police initially responded to a 9-1-1 call reporting an Armed Robbery at approximately 10:00 PM on October 19th, where it appears three youth walking on Archibald Avenue were approached by a male claiming to have a weapon and demanding their money.

Police quickly located and arrested a suspect near the location of the incident; he was held in police custody for further investigation and remanded to the Cape Breton Correctional Centre this afternoon when police formally laid charges.
