Hamilton police are seeking two suspects in a gas station robbery, including a man who was seen sporting a wolf-face-shaped hat in surveillance tapes.

Early New Year's Day, two men entered the Esso Gas Station at 1334 Main Street East. Police say one of the men grabbed the attendant in a choke hold while the other man pulled open the cash drawer and grabbed the money. Both men then fled the scene on foot.

Police describe one suspect a white man, approximately 5'9"-5'10" tall with a medium build. Police think he is approximately 25-26 years old. He was seen in surveillance footage wearing dark blue jeans, a black jacket, a black t-shirt with red lettering, a black Under Amour baseball cap and white and black running shoes.

The second suspect is also described as a white man, approximately 5'9"-5'10" tall, but with a thin build. Approximately 25-26 years old, he is seen in surveillance photos wearing light coloured blue jeans, a black winter jacket and what police described as "a cartoon-style grey wolf hat, complete with facial features (snout, eyes and ears)."

The Hamilton police BEAR unit is investigating. Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Mark Mayner at 905-546-8938 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
