Smithers RCMP make arrest in pair of robberies

Smithers RCMP have arrested a suspect in two robberies.

On Halloween afternoon, he allegedly robbed the Copperside Foods on Highway 16 while brandishing a knife.

A few days later he allegedly robbed a woman during her coffee break, taking her cell phone after threatening to get his knife.

He fled on foot after she threw coffee in his face when he demanded she get into her car, and hand over the keys.

The suspect, a 22 year old male, was arrested last night for both robbery offences, and is currently in custody.
