RCMP have released a composite drawing of suspect wanted in the robbery of a convenience store in Kentwood.

The incident happened about 9:55 p.m. on Friday when a lone man walked into the Run’n on Empty convenience store at 100 Kent Street, brandished a knife and made demands of the clerk. The robber got away with an undisclosed amount of cash and lottery tickets.

As the robber left the store, a customer made an effort to stop him. The robber threatened that person with the knife before making his escape.

No was injured and the robber was last seen southbound on foot.

The suspect is described as about 1.8 metres (five foot 10), about 75 kg (160 to 170 pounds) with a skinnier build. He had dark hair and was unshaven. He was wearing a blue and grey hooded jacket and dark pants.
