Man injured by fleeing suspects tied to hotel robbery in Niagara Falls, Ont.: police
April 14, 2020
Police say they’re still looking for a man connected to an alleged hotel robbery in Niagara Falls that led to a father being injured while he was playing with his kids at a nearby home.
Niagara Regional Police say the incident happened late Sunday afternoon near a hotel in the area of Beaverdams and Kalar roads and involved several suspects and a number of weapons, including firearms.
Investigators say the alleged incident was an attempted robbery in which three masked men tried to force their way into a hotel room.
Police say those suspects eventually ran from the scene after the commotion reportedly caught the attention of a number of hotel guests.
The fleeing suspects allegedly jumped a fence into the backyard of a neighbouring home where a father was playing with children.
Detectives say the man was “slashed” by one of the suspects with a knife while another allegedly pointed a gun at the victim.
The suspects fled the scene after getting into a waiting car, according to police.
