Two men robbed a Halifax jewelry store at gunpoint Tuesday afternoon.

The men entered Halifax Gold at 1461 Brenton Street shortly before 2 p.m. Halifax Regional Police received a 911 call at 1:48 p.m.

Const. Pierre Bourdages said the men allegedly threatened the staff with a handgun and demanded money.

"No one was hurt and the suspects fled on foot southbound on Brenton Street with an undisclosed amount of money," he said.

The men are described as:

  • a white man, 6’2", heavy set with a dark complexion, wearing a black baseball cap
  • a white man with his face covered with black fabric, wearing a black hoodie and black pants.

Bourdages said the robbers left in a newer model, extended cab, black Ford Ranger. There was a large dark object in the bed of the pickup and there were two tubular racks mounted to the sides of the truck bed, similar to ones used to transport a boat or a large ladder.

The front wheels of the truck reportedly had a lot of brake dust on the rims while the rear rims were clean. The vehicle was last seen on Brenton Place heading towards South Park Street.

Police initially reported that a lone man had robbed the store.
