Red Deer City RCMP are investigating a gunpoint robbery of a man as he walked in a city residential area.

Shortly before midnight on May 23, a 26-year-old Red Deer man was walking in Clearview North on Carleton Avenue. A man approached him from behind, demanded money and pointed a firearm at him. The suspect took the victim’s cash and ran south toward the Michael O’Brien wetland.

RCMP and dog services followed the suspect’s trail to the Michener Centre area before losing it.

Police also received a number of reports that the suspect was seen running from yard to yard in the Carter Close area.

The suspect is described as Caucasian, in his early 20s, about 1.82 metres (six foot or six foot one), skinny, having very defined cheek bones and no facial hair. He was wearing a dark-coloured, flat-brimmed hat, a dark-coloured hoodie and blue jeans.

RCMP urge anyone with information that will help identify the suspect to contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575. If you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com.
