Investigators with the Thunder Bay Police Service are investigating a weekend armed robbery of a business in the city’s north side.

Investigators learned that a male suspect armed with an edged weapon entered the business and confronted an employee.

He wore a black or dark brown leather jacket over a red or orange sweater with a hood. He also wore dark pants tucked into his boots, and white or pale yellow gloves.
