Red Deer RCMP are releasing a composite sketch of one of two suspects who attempted to rob a man as he walked downtown the night of March 29th.

Shortly before 10:30 p.m. on March 29th, RCMP received a report that two men had attempted to rob a man as he walked on 55th St. near 46th Ave.

The victim refused to hand over his wallet, and the suspects sprayed him with bear spray before running northbound on a trail off of 55th St.

RCMP contained the area and searched for the suspects with assistance from Police Dog Services, but did not locate them.

The first suspect, who is pictured in the sketch, is described as an Aboriginal male, about 20-years-old and 6’ tall. He had short, dark hair, a thin build, with sunken cheeks and a pocked complexion. He was wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans with a red bandana hanging from left rear belt loo.

The second suspect is described as an Aboriginal male, approximately 20-years-old who may have been wearing a hat.
