Seeking public assistance - Gas drive off resulting in hit-and-run ***vehicle located***

The Calgary Police Service is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying two men believed to be involved in two gas drive-offs, one resulting in a hit-and-run.

At approximately 7:30 p.m., on Friday, June 5, 2015, a stolen 2006 Ford Super Duty pick-up truck with Alberta license plate EUX378, pulled up to a gas station in the 8400 block of Bowfort Road N.W. The passenger of the Ford filled up the vehicle and then left without paying.

At approximately 11 a.m., on Sunday, June 7, 2015, the same vehicle is believed to have committed a gas drive-off at a gas station at 1740 16 Avenue N.W. The Ford headed westbound on 16 Avenue and pulled into a parking lot, approximately one block west, at 1818 16 Avenue N.W. A 35-year-old female employee of the gas station tracked down the Ford in the parking lot and attempted to prevent it from driving away by standing in front it. The Ford struck the woman as it exited the parking lot and carried her on the hood approximately 15 metres. The woman was deposited off of the hood into the middle westbound lane of the 1800 block of 16 Avenue. The woman was subsequently run over by the Ford as it fled the scene westbound on 16 Avenue N.W.

The two suspects are described as Caucasian males, 20 to 25 years old, with a slim build. The driver has brown hair and the passenger has blond hair and was wearing a cowboy hat during the incident on June 5. Video from the June 7 incident as well as pictures from both incidents are available on The City of Calgary Newsroom.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of these two suspects is asked to call the Traffic Section at 403-567-4000 or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
