Ottawa Police are asking for the public's help in solving a robbery that took place last month in Lowertown.
Police say a man allowed an acquaintance into his apartment on Augusta near Rideau around 2:30 a.m. on Valentine's Day. The occupant only knew the man by appearance through another acquaintance.
The two reportedly chatted for sometime until the man demanded cash from the occupant and then assaulted him with a metal bar.
The suspect fled empty handed. The victim had minor injuries.
He is described as black, 20 to 25 years old, unshaven with black hair and a medium build.
