Halifax Regional Police had a busy Saturday night when it came to robberies.

Police responded to three separate robberies over a period of five hours, including two taking place at the same time on different sides of the harbour.

At 11:10 p.m., police responded to a robbery in the parking lot of the McDonald’s on Main Street in Dartmouth.

Police say a man approached someone sitting in his car and demanded money while holding his hand under his shirt.

According to police, the victim believed he had a weapon but didn’t give any money to the suspect.

Police say the accused then allegedly fled in a vehicle, with the victim following him and directing officers to his location.

A man is now facing a charge of attempted robbery.

Also at 11:10 p.m. in Halifax, police responded to a robbery in Armstrong Court as a man delivering food for a restaurant was confronted by two males.

Police say the suspects demanded money, and one sprayed the victim with the bear spray. Both fled the area on foot and there have been no arrests.

The other robbery took place at 6:44 p.m. on Spring Garden Road. Police say officers encountered two men allegedly assaulting a third male, with the victim covered in blood.

The victim told police he was beaten by the males who took some of his belongings.

The men — aged 20 and 25 — were arrested and are facing various charges.
