Police are looking for two men in connection with a robbery at the Casa Loma Hotel on Saturday night.
Two men entered the bar just after 11 p.m. and demanded the bartender empty the till. One of the culprits was wearing a balaclava, the other an ATV helmet.
The suspects shoved the bartender to the ground and grabbed a handful of cash from the till before making their escape, according to police.
Whitehorse RCMP are searching for the two men, one described as five-foot-seven, about 160 pounds, with a black hoodie. The other suspect is between five-foot-three and five-foot-four and about 180 to 190 pounds with an olive-green hoodie. Both are estimated to be in their 20s.
Police recovered at the scene what they believe to be the ATV helmet worn by one of the robbers, and are asking the public to help identify its owner, said RCMP constable Dean Hoogland.
Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact the Whitehorse RCMP at 776-5551.
