Seeking Public Assistance - Carjacking

The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance for information relating to a carjacking incident that occurred earlier this week.

At approximately 11 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 16, 2014, a woman working as a shuttle driver for a hotel was flagged down by a man in the area of the 2500 block of 32 Avenue N.E. Thinking the man was in need of directions, she pulled over and rolled down the passenger side window. The man then quickly reached in, entered the vehicle while holding a sharp object to the woman’s side and instructed her to drive.

The man made the woman drive to a convenience store located in the 2900 block of Radcliffe Drive S.E. where he then told her to go into the store and purchase items for him. After she exited the vehicle, the man drove off, nearly striking a pedestrian in the parking lot.

The vehicle and the man have yet to be located.

The man is described as Caucasian, between 45 and 50 years old, 6’ tall, approximately 200 lbs, with a medium build and a well-kept appearance. The man had blonde hair on the sides of his head, balding on top and some facial hair. He was wearing a light blue jacket with white stripes.

The vehicle is a white 2013 Honda Odyssey with logos on the sides and back of “Comfort Inn,” “Staybridge Suites” and “Super 8,” with Alberta license plate number 36M942.
