Clerks injured in convenience store robberies
The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance with identifying a man believed to be involved in four cases of convenience store robberies where the clerks were assaulted.
In each of the robberies, the suspect allegedly enters the store, brandishes a weapon, jumps the counter and demands the clerk open the cash register before ordering them to lay on the floor. After stealing items, the suspect then allegedly stomps on the clerk’s head or neck area multiple times before fleeing.
