Hamilton police are searching for a man they say held up an elderly woman's business in downtown Hamilton on Saturday.

Around 10 a.m., a man walked into the Hamilton Pipe Shop on James Street North and demanded money from the 89-year-old woman who owns the shop, police say.

She gave him an undisclosed amount of cash and he took off, police say. No weapon was seen, and no one was injured.

Officers are currently reviewing security footage from cameras in the area. The investigation is ongoing.
