RCMP said he took money from the register and left the store heading west on St. Paul Street, then south again through the East parking of the Double Tree Hotel towards the back alley. The clerk was not injured.

  • –  5’8”

  • –  Wearing: Black toque, black bandana, grey zipped up hoody, blue jeans, grey runningshoes and black gloves.

RCMP say the suspect met another man in the back alley. That suspect is described as:

  • –  Same height as suspect #1 and about same size
  • –  Wearing: Black baseball cap, black pea coat with a grey hoody underneath, blue jeans,and white running shoes with light blue shoe laces, carrying 1 red “Under Armour” medium size duffle bag.

Police aren’t able to confirm whether the robbery is related to the earlier one.
