Kelowna RCMP are investigating a robbery at a business in the city's Rutland neighbourhood.

On May 9, just before 3 p.m., a man entered a business in the 1400 block of Highway 33 W of Kelowna where he allegedly produced what appeared to be a handgun and demanded cash, according to an RCMP media release. He fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money.

RCMP did not identify the business.

Officers conducted a thorough search of the area but did not locate the suspect.

The suspect was described as a Caucasian male. He was wearing sunglasses, a toque, a black jacket, a backpack and had a medical mask on his lower face.

Anyone with information on this robbery is asked to come forward and speak to the Kelowna RCMP by calling 250-762-3300, or remain anonymous by calling CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
