Prince George RCMP are investigating two armed robberies that occurred over the weekend.
Last Friday March 4th, a man entered a store on the 4100 block of 15th Avenue at around 9:30pm, produced a weapon and demanded cash, lottery tickets, and tobacco products.
The employee complied, and the suspect fled on foot before police could be called.
The suspect was not located, but fortunately no one was hurt.
The suspect is described as:
- Caucasian male
- 20 to 25 year old
- 165 cm (5’5″)
- Slim build, approximately 68 kg (150 lbs)
- Wearing a black ski mask, blue jeans and a dark jacket
Last Sunday, around 11:30pm, police were notified of another armed robbery at a store on the 3600 block of Austin Road West.
A man and woman entered the store and demanded cash, lottery tickets, and tobacco products.
The employees complied and the suspects fled on foot.
Again, attempts to find the suspects were not successful.
The male suspect is described as:
- A South Asian or First Nations male
- 173 to 180 cm (5’8″ to 5’11”)
