Investigators say the lone suspect entered the store armed with a knife and grabbed an unknown amount of cash before fleeing on foot.

No one was hurt in the incident.

Hamilton police arrested Steve Robertson on Wednesday, just over four months after the holdup, and charged him with robbery and disguise with intent.
