Stettler RCMP seek to identify armed robbery suspect

No one was injured

The RCMP are seeking public assistance to identify a man who attempted an armed robbery at the Stettler Hotel on Aug. 22.

At 1:08 a.m., the Stettler RCMP responded to a 911 call at the hotel. A male suspect entered from the back door and was seen carrying a handgun.

When the man could not locate a staff member, he apparently became nervous and fled the hotel, police say.

No one was injured, and nothing was taken during this incident.

The man is described as: five-foot-eight to six-feet tall, with a slim build, wearing a black baseball cap and a black balaclava. He is believed to be Caucasian

If you have information about this incident or the male involved, contact the Stettler RCMP at 403-742-3382. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), online at www.P3Tips.com.
