A witness to an attempted robbery at the 7-11 Monday morning intervened and sustained injuries in the process.

Kelowna RCMP responded to a report of a robbery in progress at the 7-11 convenience store located at 1115 Bernard Ave. March 9, 2015 at 1:55 a.m.

“A lone masked male entered the store brandishing a knife and demanded cigarettes,” said Const. Kris Clark.  “Another customer confronted the male and engaged in a physical altercation resulting in the suspect fleeing the scene.

The male customer suffered a cut to his hand in the altercation. Clark pointed out that things could have been much worse, and it’s best not to try to subdue people with weapons.

The suspect is described as:

  • Caucasian male
  • 17 years old
  • 5 foot 5 in to 5 foot 8 in
  • Slim build
  • Wearing a black hoodie and jeans
