Red Deer RCMP are looking for public assistance to identify three men who robbed a man at gunpoint this morning as he walked to a bus stop.

RCMP responded to a report of an armed robbery at approximately 5:10 a.m. on Jan. 16th at the intersection of 59th Ave. and 68th St.; as a 26-year-old man was walking toward the bus stop on 59th Ave., a black car driving northbound on 59th Ave. stopped and two of the three occupants pointed firearms at the victim, demanding his wallet.

As the victim walked away after handing over his wallet, the two men holding guns fired several shots into the air. The victim was not injured in the robbery.

The car is described as a black four-door 2008 Chevrolet Malibu, last seen driving east on 68th St. toward Gaetz Avenue.

The driver is described as Caucasian and taller than the two passengers. He has a medium build and was wearing a black cloth ski mask with two eye holes and one mouth hole.

The front seat passenger is described as possibly Asian, between 5’4″ to 5’5″ tall and about 19- 21-years-old. He was wearing a black flat brim ball cap, a light grey and black zip-up hoody with designs on it and was wielding a long-barreled firearm, possibly .22 calibre, with a black barrel.

The rear seat passenger is described as Caucasian with a medium build. He was wielding a double-barreled shotgun.
