Saint John police are investigating an armed robbery at a bingo hall in the city.

Officers were called to McAllister Drive on the city’s east side around 10 p.m. Sunday.

In a news release Tuesday, police said a man allegedly entered the bingo hall armed with a weapon.

The man reportedly assaulted a 40-year-old man and a 66-year-old woman before fleeing with cash.
