At 2:50pm on Thursday, Police received a report of a robbery on Burnaby Street in the City of Hamilton. The victim, a 42 year old Pembroke man, stated that around 1am that day he walked from a Front Street establishment to Burnaby Street, where his motorcycle was parked. When he reached the motorcycle, he put his helmet on the seat and bent down to tie his shoe. After tying his shoe he stood up and noticed three young men standing around him. One of the young men took the victim's helmet and hit him with it, knocking the Pembroke man to the ground. The suspects then allegedly removed $150 in cash and the victim's helmet before making good their escape. The helmet is described as a black Harley Davidson helmet with a black visor and "Muggy" airbrushed in red & white lettering on both sides. The victim, who apparently was not injured, could only describe the suspects as three young black men between 5'6" and 5'9" tall. Inquiries into this incident are underway. Police are appealing for any witnesses to this incident to contact the Hamilton Criminal Investigation Unit on 295-0011.
