Red Deer RCMP are looking for public assistance to identify the man who robbed the Express 24 at gunpoint shortly before 3 a.m. on Feb. 10th.

At 2:50 a.m. on Feb. 10th, a disguised male entered the Express 24 Foodmart at 7141 50th Ave., brandishing a handgun. He demanded cash and cigarettes from the clerk, which were placed in a black and orange duffle bag the suspect brought with him. The suspect fled the store and got into the passenger side of a dark blue, two-door car, possibly a Saturn.

The suspect is described as Caucasian, between 17- 21-years-old, 5’5” to 5’7” tall and about 150 – 155 lbs. He was wearing a blue winter coat with a hood, a yellow and green balaclava mask and gloves.
