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.
