Police investigate threats to Grande Prairie convenience store clerk

GRANDE PRAIRIE, A.B. — RCMP in Grande Prairie received a report of a man who got aggressive and threatened a Eastside Convenience Store clerk that asked him for identification before validating a lottery ticket on Friday night.

The suspect had a knife with him, but was chased out of the store by another employee with a baseball bat.

The suspect is described as a 5’4″, 30-year-old Caucasian man, with brown hair shaved into the shape of a V in the back. He was wearing a black ball cap with ‘obey’ written on it, a dark hoodie and baggy grey jogging pants.

RCMP patrolled the area extensively with Police Dog Services in attendance, but the suspect could not be located.

Anyone with more information in this case is urged to contact the Grande Prairie RCMP detachment immediately.
