Carjacking in Red Deer has police on the hunt

A broad-daylight carjacking has Red Deer RCMP on the hunt for a pair of male suspects.

Police are investigating a brazen mid-day carjacking involving a knife in Chapters parking lot on Sunday.

Red Deer RCMP say at about 2 p.m., a lone male was sitting in his Jeep when two men approached the driver’s side window, produced a knife and demanded he get out.

When the owner got out, the two men got in the vehicle and fled the parking lot, located at 5250 22nd St.

One suspect was described as in his 20s, aboriginal, tall and skinny. He had long dark hair in a ponytail and wore a baseball cap.

The other suspect was also in his 20s, aboriginal, with short dark hair. He wore jeans and a T-shirt.

The vehicle that was stolen was a white 2012 Jeep Patriot with the Alberta licence plate SCC 344.

Anyone with information to assist police in identifying the suspects is asked to call the Red Deer City RCMP at 403-343-5575, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
