On Monday, Jan. 7, 2018, at approximately 6:45 p.m., York Regional Police were called to a convenience store on Bathurst Street at Rutherford Road for a report of a robbery.

Two male suspects entered the store and jumped over the counter. The first suspect grabbed the employee while the second suspect began taking cash from the register. The first suspect then stabbed the employee twice, before the suspects fled in a white SUV.

The victim was taken to hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
