Hamilton police are looking for help from the public in identifying suspects who, they say, robbed two males at knifepoint in August as they were waiting for a bus.

It happened just after 5 a.m. on Aug. 30, police say, when two males waiting for a bus near Main street and Osler Drive were threatened by a group of males armed with a knife. 

The group exited a vehicle and threatened the two males, who turned over their wallets before the group drove off in a white, four-door sedan. 

No one was injured. 

The bank card of one victim was used within minutes at a gas station nearby to make a purchase, where the suspect was captured on the store's surveillance. 

The suspect is described as male, in his early twenties with a medium build and dark hair.

Anyone with information is asked to contact crime stoppers.
