File # 2018-8236

A man entered a convenience store on Park Avenue in Prince Rupert, BC brandishing a knife.

Police responded to a call for assistance at the store at approximately 1:50 AM with reports that they had been robbed at knife point.

Upon attending the scene it was determined that a quantity of cash was stolen. Eye witness accounts and video surveillance describe the suspect as wearing all black clothing, a black hoody with a large red eagle design on the back. The suspect is believed be a male, approximately 6 feet tall with a deep voice.

Police continue to work on the investigation with specialized sections. S/Sgt. Uppal of the Prince Rupert RCMP stated that, "We recently solved a similar incident last year at this location, and we expect the same results".

We believe that this incident is isolated to the convenience store and that there is no safety concern to the public.

Police are asking for the public’s assistance and to call the Prince Rupert RCMP at 250-627-0700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) if they witnessed anything suspicious in the early morning of October 27 in the Park Avenue area.
