A robbery at gun point this morning in Red Deer has police eager to identify the suspects before anyone is hurt.

Around 5:10 a.m. this morning, Monday, Jan. 16, a man was robbed by three men as he walked to his bus stop near 59 Avenue and 68 Street.

A black car was driving northbound on 59 Avenue and stopped; two of the men leaped out and pointed firearms at the 26-year-old victim.

The victim handed over his wallet when it was demanded and walked away unharmed, though as he left the two robbers fired several shots into the air.

The car is described as a black four-door 2008 Chevrolet Malibu and was last seen driving east on 68 Street towards Gaetz Avenue.

The driver, who did not exit the vehicle, is described as Caucasian, taller than his passengers and of medium build, and was wearing a black cloth ski mask with two eye holes and a mouth hole.

The front seat passenger is described as possibly Asian, 5’4″ to 5’5″ tall, 19-21 years of age, and was wearing a black, flat-brimmed ball cap, a light grey and black zip-up hoodie with designs on it, and was wielding a long-barreled firearm – possible a .22 calibre – with a black barrel.

The rear seat passenger is described as Caucasian, medium build, and wielded a double-barreled shotgun.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to phone the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575, or anonymously phone Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
