Police are requesting the public’s help in identifying a man and woman they say are responsible for a robbery last month.
Just after 8 p.m. on Friday February 3, the Prince George RCMP received a report of a robbery that occurred at a retail store on Southridge Avenue.
Officers attended and found that a man, accompanied by a woman, was attempting to leave the store with an un-purchased remote controlled car when he was requested to show his receipt. The suspect failed to show a receipt and left the store. He was confronted by staff at which time he pulled out a canister of bear mace and sprayed it at an employee twice, hitting him once.
The two suspects got into the rear seats of a newer model grey Chrysler 300 or Sebring and left with the product, valued at approximately $100.
The man is described as:
- 20 to 25 years old
- Athletic build
- 173 cm (5’8″)
- Clean shaven
- Wearing a black hoodie with white lettering and black pants with white lettering.
The woman is described as:
- First Nations
- 170 cm (5’7″)
- 45 kg (100 lbs)
- Wearing a black coat, black hoody and carrying a large tan or brown purse
All efforts to identify the suspects have been negative to date. Investigators are now asking the public’s help to identify the suspects.
