Police arrest armed robbery suspect in Iqaluit
22-year-old man charged after taxi driver robbed at knifepoint
Police in Iqaluit are thanking members of the public who provided information that led to the arrest of an armed robbery suspect late last week.
The RCMP had issued a news release asking for the public’s help to identify a man they said had used a knife to rob a taxi driver shortly after 12 a.m. Friday.
RCMP allege the man stepped into a Caribou Tuktu Cabs taxi, showed the driver a knife, demanded money and then fled. Police also issued a photo of the suspect from what appeared to be a security camera.
On Monday, the RCMP announced they had arrested a 22-year-old man and charged him with robbery. He is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 9.
