Attempted robbery with a knife
On Friday, Jan. 9, at approximately 8:30 p.m., a lone male attempted to rob the Jim Bob’s Mini Mart on Warren Avenue in Kimberley.
The male entered the business, produced a knife and demanded cash. The clerk hit the panic alarm and told the subject the police were on their way. The male fled on foot without any cash.
A police dog followed a track to the Kimbrook Apartments parking lot located behind Jim Bob’s. Fresh tire tracks in the snow indicate it’s likely the subject left the area in a vehicle.
The subject was wearing a red winter coat with a hood and had covered his face with a red scarf. He had jeans and black skater type shoes.
If anybody has information concerning this incident they are asked to call Kimberley RCMP at 250 427-4811 or Crimestoppers.
