Just after 10 p.m. Sunday evening, Huron County OPP was contacted by a store owner reporting an armed robbery.
One man entered the store and demanded cash.
During the robbery, the man brandished a handgun.
The suspect left the store with an undisclosed amount of money. It is believed the suspect got into a vehicle parked just west of the store. Prior to this, around 9 p.m., police believe the same suspect was seen in Huron Park trying to enter a variety store with a handgun, but was unsuccessful as the business had just closed for the evening. While police were responding to Huron Park, the robbery in Exeter occurred.
The suspect is described as a white male, around 5′ 6″ tall, wearing black patterned shorts, brown jacket, a black baseball cap, black face mask, and brown work boots.
The vehicle was not identified.
