Two men have been arrested after a man was robbed at knifepoint at a bus terminal in Halifax Tuesday morning.

The man, 21, was waiting for a bus at Lacewood Drive in the Clayton Park area shortly after midnight when two men approached him and pulled a knife. The pair demanded his possessions.

The man ran, dropping his wallet in the process.
