Red Deer RCMP ask public to help identify robbery suspect

Red Deer RCMP have obtained surveillance photos of the man who robbed the East Hill Liquor Depot at gunpoint on Sunday night, and are looking for public assistance to identify him.

Red Deer RCMP said earlier that shortly after 10 p.m., a man entered the liquor store at 22nd Street and 30th Avenue and pointed a long barrel shotgun at the staff member while demanding cash.

The suspect left with an undisclosed amount of money and got into the back seat of a waiting parked car, which fled the parking lot at a high rate of speed. The car was seen driving north on 40th Avenue and then turning west on Selkirk Boulevard. No one was injured in the robbery.

The man is described as Caucasian, 1.8 metres (5 feet 11 inches) tall, slim build, wearing a black hoodie and black balaclava. The suspect car is described as an older red and grey car with metal rails on the trunk.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com.
