Seeking public assistance - commercial robberies - M&M Meat Shop
The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance in identifying a suspect in relation to two commercial robberies.
At approximately 12:15 p.m., on Tuesday, Aug. 16, 2016, a man entered an M&M Meat Shop located in the 200 block of Shawville Boulevard S.E. He selected an item from the freezer and approached the till. He spoke to the clerk asking her to step aside. He went around the corner to the till, while holding a silver switch-blade knife in his right hand. The clerk opened the cash register and the man removed the cash, placing it in his pocket before exiting the shop.
At approximately 2:30 p.m., on Sunday, Aug. 21. 2016, a man entered the M&M Meat Shop located in the 8000 block of Centre Street N.E. He walked around and briefly spoke to the store clerk before walking out. He returned five minutes later, walking towards a display of barbeque supplies and then bringing the item to the till. As the clerk was ringing in the sale, the man walked around the counter to stand beside her, asking her to step aside. The clerk noticed a small switch-blade knife in his right hand. The man pulled the till open, removing money before leaving the shop.
The suspect in both incidents is described as Caucasian with a pale complexion, between 27 to 32-years-old. He is believed to be about 5’10” tall, skinny, with dark curly hair.
