RCMP are on the lookout for a man who allegedly fled an armed robbery in a vehicle with Saskatchewan licence plates on Tuesday. At around 4:30 p.m. CT, officers were called to the Wheatfield Inn Bar in Kitscoty, Alta.
A male had reportedly entered the bar through the back door and sat briefly at a VLT terminal before going to the till. When he asked the bartender for change, the bartender opened the cash drawer and that’s when police allege the suspect produced a can of bear spray and demanded money.
A struggle ensued and the bartender was sprayed in the face.
The suspect made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and was seen fleeing the bar in a white SUV.
He is described as thin, 5’10” to 6’0″ tall and balding with a shaved head.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police 780-846-2870 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
