RCMP have charged a Red Deer man in connection with a robbery at an Eastview convenience store early Saturday.

Cpl. Kathe DeHeer of Red Deer RCMP said Monday the heist occurred around 4 a.m. at the Express 24 on Ross Street and Erickson Drive.

The suspect had red contact lenses and his face was partially covered with a green or blue bandana.

He brandished a knife at the clerk, demanded cash, and was last seen running into the subdivision.

The RCMP forensic identification unit investigated and discovered physical evidence which is being analyzed.

Scott Smith, 18, is charged with one count of robbery with a weapon.

Smith was released from custody and is scheduled to appear in Red Deer provincial court on Wednesday.
