Whitehorse RCMP have released the photo of the suspect in an attempted robbery over the weekend where a store clerk was hit with bear spray.
On Saturday at 5:12 a.m. an employee of Goody’s Gas Bar told police a man had entered the Porter Creek store and demanded money from the safe.
“The demand was not met and the suspect proceeded to bear spray the employee,” police said in a statement. The man left empty handed.
“The employee immediately contacted RCMP. Whitehorse RCMP attended the scene along with M division police dog services. The suspect was not located.”
Police are asking for the public’s help to find the person responsible.
He is described as being of First Nation descent, approximately 5’10 to 6 feet tall and about 160 to 180 pounds.
He was wearing a black jacket with a white “FOX” emblem on the left chest and a large diagonal white band from the right shoulder to the left waist area. He had heavy rubber boots on.
Anyone with any information in relation to this crime is asked to call the Whitehorse RCMP at 667-5551.
