The Canadian Criminal Code outlines 4 ways a Robbery may be committed:
∙ Stealing while using violence or threats of violence to take or extort the property
∙ Stealing and, either immediately before or after taking the property, either wounding, striking, beating or otherwise using violence against the person
∙ Assaulting any person with the intent to steal
∙ Stealing from a person while being armed with a weapon or an imitation of a weapon.
In robbery cases, prosecutors will consider:
∙ Was a weapon used?
∙ Was the victim or a bystander injured or killed?
∙ Was the victim a vulernable person such as a taxi driver, a bank teller, a gas station attendant or working at a convenience store or jewellery store?
∙ What was robbery committed near a school, community centre or other vulnerable area?
