Police are seeking four young men accused of mugging a pair of patrons at a Red Deer McDonald’s restaurant early on the morning of Saturday, May 26.

Cpl. Kathe DeHeer, media liaison officer for the Red Deer City RCMP, said a man and a woman, both aged 21, had entered the East Hill store, located in the mall at 22nd Street and 30th Ave., at about 4:30 a.m. when four young men lined up behind them.

Security video from inside the store shows the man and woman talking with their alleged attackers shortly before leaving the store.

The video shows one of the suspects with his back to the counter, gesturing toward the door with the middle finger of each hand.

RCMP allege that the two victims were jumped after leaving the store and that the man was robbed of his wallet, keys and cellphone. He suffered a concussion in the fray and one of his companion’s fingers was broken. Both were taken to hospital for treatment, said DeHeer.

Police are seeking help identifying and locating the four men believed responsible for the attack.

Suspect 1 is described as being short and skinny with pale eyes and dark eyebrows, wearing a ball cap, red shirt and jeans.

Suspect 2, believed to be the one who broke the woman’s finger, is baby-faced, tall and hefty with light-coloured eyebrows and wearing jeans.

Suspect 3 is a Caucasian with light brown hair, wearing a black cap, black sweater and jeans.

The final suspect is fairly short and slightly built with dark curly hair and dark eyebrows. He was wearing a red shirt and jeans.

Police ask that anyone who has information that could help identify these suspects contact the Red Deer City RCMP at 403-343-5575.
