Sandwich store robber sought

RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance to identity of a man alleged to have robbed a Subway store

RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance to identity of a man alleged to have robbed a Subway store in late April.

The Kelowna RCMP were dispatched to a robbery April 30 shortly after 9:30 p.m., at the Subway store located in the 1700 block of Springfield Road. Police have learned that the suspect allegedly stole an undisclosed amount of cash from the open register and fled the store on foot.

“The store’s lone employee followed the suspect, and physically confronted the suspect outside the restaurant. It was at this time that the suspect allegedly produced and brandished a knife which prompted the employee to retreat back inside the store,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, in a press release.

The employee was uninjured during the encounter. A search of the area conducted by police was negative.

“Police have since obtained surveillance footage of the suspect inside the restaurant,” says Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey. “The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, approximately 5-foot-10 in height, with short hair, a receding hair line, seen wearing a black T-shirt and dark coloured pants with a reflective stripe around the ankles.”

If you can help investigators identify the man seen in the photographs, you are asked to contact Cst. Shaun Keyes of the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300. Or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
