The RCMP are looking for multiple suspects in connection with an attempted carjacking and a break and enter in eastern Alberta.

According to police, officers responded to the attempted carjacking near the community hall in Frog Lake, Alta. at about 7 a.m. on Monday. They said a black pickup truck tried to “force another vehicle off the road” and one of several people in the truck pointed what was believed to be a gun at the victim.

Mounties said the truck then sped away. Earlier in the day, police said a truck with the same description was reportedly involved in a break and enter in Laurier Lake, Alta., which is about 11 kilometres west of Frog Lake.

Police did not provide details about the break and enter.
