The Lloydminster RCMP is looking for a suspect after an attempted robbery earlier this month.

Police say that at about 1:15 a.m. on Oct. 11, they received a call from an employee of a business near 47 Avenue and 44 Street saying that an unknown Caucasian male entered the business brandishing a knife.

The employees immediately directed him to leave the store.  He fled on foot after unsuccessfully obtaining money or goods. 

The Lloydminster Police Dog Services attended and tracked the suspect, however he was not located. 

He was described as wearing a grey hooded jacket, gloves and a tuque.  As a result of the dog track, a knife and several items of clothing, believed to be worn by the suspect at the time of the incident, were located. 

“There was great potential for harm in this incident and the RCMP is relieved that nothing materialized,” said Const. Grant Kirzinger.  “There is no circumstance worth risking the safety of yourself or others for money or merchandise. The police suggest you let the person take what they want then call 9-1-1 immediately.”  Anyone with information is asked to call Lloydminster RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
