Whitehorse RCMP is investigating another rash of thefts that took place in Whitehorse over the last two weeks.
On July 28, a 15-year-old boy was allegedly assaulted by two male suspects in the middle of the day on Third Avenue, police say.
When a passerby intervened, the two suspects allegedly made off with the victim’s BMX bike, heading toward the Skookum Jim Friendship Centre.
No weapons were used, and the victim was assessed by Yukon Emergency Medical Services before being left with a parent.
The first suspect was described as a tall First Nations male dressed in black, with red and black shoes and a red hat.
The second suspect was described as a short Caucasian male, approximately 5’5”, with black hair, wearing a black hoodie with a yellow symbol on it.
The bike is described as a bright orange BMX bicycle with “BMX Sunday” displayed on the frame.
On the same day, RCMP received a report of a break-in the night before at Sweetness Bakery.
The glass of one of the doors was broken, and an undisclosed amount of cash was stolen, an RCMP statement says.
The RCMP has also learned of multiple thefts from customers at Walmart on July 20 and 21.
Victims typically had their wallets stolen from purses left unattended in shopping carts. The wallets were mostly recovered, but were missing cash and credit cards.
Police are reminding shoppers not to leave their possessions unattended.
All of the incidents are still under investigation.
Whitehorse RCMP is asking anyone with information to contact them at 867-667-5555.
