Police seeking public’s assistance with liquor store robberies
The Calgary Police Service is asking for the public’s help to identify a suspect connected to two robberies at a southeast Calgary liquor store.
At approximately 6 p.m., on Thursday, Dec. 4, 2014, a man entered a liquor store located in the 4500 block of 26 Avenue S.E. After asking the store clerk for assistance, he produced a knife and demanded all the money in the store till. It is believed the same man returned to the liquor store around 6 p.m., on Sunday, Jan. 25, 2015, and demanded money again after threatening the store clerk with a knife. No one was injured in either incident.
The suspect is described as a Caucasian male in his mid-30s, between 5’3” and 5’6” in height, with a medium build. He was wearing a tan jacket with a blue hoodie during the first robbery and a grey hoodie with dark running shoes that have a white stripe during the second one.
CCTV photos of the suspect are available in The City of Calgary Newsroom.
Anyone with information on either of these incidents is asked to contact the Calgary Police Service non-emergency line at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at:
