Red Deer city RCMP need the public’s help in tracking down a suspect who attacked two youths outside a convenience store nearly three weeks ago.

On Friday, April 12, at about 9 p.m., police were called to the Eastview 7-Eleven store after a male assaulted two teens walking home after buying something inside.

The suspect is described as being a taller male who stood about 1.78 to 1.8 metres tall (five foot 10 to five foot 11 inches), about 90 kg (200 pounds), has blonde hair, and wearing a black hat and dark grey or black hoodie.

The male got into a dark van and left the scene.

RCMP were told this same male was in the store about an hour before and was talking on his cellphone to someone who had just broken up with his girlfriend.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 403-343-5575, anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com. If the information leads to an arrest, tipsters are eligible to receive up to $2,000.
