Halifax robber sprays hotel clerk
A Halifax hotel clerk was sprayed with some sort of irritant during a robbery Friday night, police say.
The incident happened at the Comfort Inn on the Bedford Highway.
A lone male wearing a bandana across his face walked into the hotel's lobby shortly after 8 p.m. and demanded cash from the woman working at the front desk, police said Saturday.
He then sprayed the 25-year-old woman with the irritant before grabbing an undisclosed amount of cash and leaving.
The employee was treated at the scene and did not need to go to hospital.
