DARTMOUTH - A 43-year-old man is facing charges after someone was held up outside a downtown Dartmouth hotel on Monday night.
Just before midnight, police say a man was walking back to the Dartmouth Oceanview Hotel on King Street when a person armed with a knife demanded he hand over his money.
The victim complied, then went into the hotel and called police.
Officers arrived a short time later and, with the help of a K9 unit, arrested a 43-year-old from Dartmouth.
The victim wasn’t injured. The accused is due in Dartmouth provincial court Wednesday charged with one count of robbery.
