A man has been charged with robbery after threatening a Vancouver grocery story worker with a meat cleaver for being told to put on a mask.
Cody Echlin, 23, has been released on bail pending future court appearances, Vancouver police annouced Tuesday (Jan. 4).
It’s alleged that the man was shopping at a Robson Street grocery store on Monday when an employee insisted he mask up. After allegedly pulling a knife and threatening the worker, police say he left without paying for his groceries.
Police found the suspect trying to leave in a taxi.
