The Husky Food Store on Westminster Avenue was robbed on Wednesday evening.

The female employee advised that a male wearing a “skull” bandana covering his face with his hands in his jacket pockets had come into the store at 9 p.m. and demanded cash from the tills.

The employee was alone in the store at the time and put the cash on the counter. The suspect grabbed the cash and departed the store. RCMP arrived along with a Police Service Dog but were unable to locate the suspect. No weapon was seen or produced and the suspect got away with only a small quantity of cash.

The suspect appears to be a Caucasian male, 35 to 45 years old, approximately 5’9″ tall, heavy set, about 200 pounds, wearing a white or black balaclava,grey/brown fabric suit jacket that appeared one or two sizes too small over a thick grey button up shirt, black baggy pants, a bright red and blue baseball cap with an unidentifiable insignia on the front and what appeared to be running shoes with yellow soles.
