Knife used in carjacking in Penhold

A vehicle owner was ordered out of his vehicle by two men who were test driving it.

The owner of a vehicle that was being test driven was the victim of a carjacking in Penhold on Monday.

Innisfail RCMP said in a statement on Friday that they responded to a complaint of the incident that involved two unknown men driving the vehicle with the owner of the vehicle.

The unknown driver subsequently produced a knife and ordered the owner of the vehicle, who was in the back seat, to get out. Both suspects — the driver and passenger — then fled in the stolen vehicle. The owner of the vehicle was not injured.

The male driver is described as late 30s, brown pony tail tucked into his hat, wearing a black hat with an RDS sticker, black leather jacket, blue jeans and white Adidas shoes, and a tattoo high on his neck.

The male passenger is described as late 20s, light brown hair, ball cap, Oakley sunglasses, wearing a black Volcom hoodie, and jeans.

Innisfail RCMP are looking for any information that would assist police in identifying these two suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to call Innisfail RCMP at 403-227-3342 or local police. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), by Internet at www.tipsubmit.com or by SMS (check your local Crime Stoppers www.crimestoppers.ab.ca for instructions).
