Halifax Regional Police say a gas station was robbed early Saturday morning in Dartmouth.

Just before 4 a.m., three people walked into the Irving station located at 626 Windmill Road. Police said they went behind the counter and began to fill a bag with cigarette packs and demanded money from the till.

“One of the male suspects brandished a hammer, the other male had a needle, while the female had a knife,” read a 10 a.m. release, adding the gas station staff member was not injured.
