KAMLOOPS - A man was robbed by three males, one armed with a machete, while walking down Tranquille Road early this morning.

A man was walking on Tranquille Road between Yew Street and Aspen Street around 1:35 a.m., March 1, when he was robbed by three men, who got away with his wallet and cell phone. A machete was ‘brandished’ in the robbery, according to Cpl. Jodi Shelkie of Kamloops RCMP, but the victim was not injured.

The male with the machete is described as about 5’11”, 18 to 25 years old, darker skin and wearing a grey hoodie and flat brimmed ball cap. A second male was thinner and wearing a black hoodie and there is no description of the third suspect.

RCMP responded immediately and a police dog tracked the suspects for more than an hour before losing the track near Kitchener Crescent.

Anyone with any information about the identity of the suspects is asked to call Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
