The Halifax Regional Police is asking the public to help identify a suspect involved in an assault with a weapon at a drive-thru last week.
In a statement, police said officers responded to a report of an ongoing robbery at McDonald’s drive-thru at 331 Herring Cove Rd. Around 10:30 a.m. on Sept. 8.
A second-long video shared by police shows the suspect approaching a black vehicle from behind the driver’s side.
The statement said the suspect approached a man who was inside the vehicle at the time and struck him with “what was described as a metallic object” before fleeing the area in a vehicle.
“The victim was taken to hospital for treatment for what were believed to be non-life-threatening injuries,” he said.
