Police are investigating after a local gas station was robbed by a man with a 30-centimetre-long bowie knife.

Yukon RCMP were called to Bernie’s Racetrac Gas off of Hamilton Boulevard on McIntyre Drive around 11 p.m. Saturday night.

The gas station attendant told officers he had been closing up the store, when an unknown man entered, wearing a ski mask and brandishing a knife.

“The suspect demanded the attendant put the money from the cash till as well as packages of cigarettes and a number of ‘scratch’ lottery tickets into a bag he had brought with him,” police said in a news release.

“The suspect then fled the area. The attendant was not physically harmed during the incident.”

RCMP Const. Christine Grant said police are currently investigating what was captured on surveillance cameras.

The suspect is described as about 5’8 – 5’10” in height. He wore black clothes, gloves and a black ski mask.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Whitehorse RCMP at 867-667-5551.
