KAMLOOPS - After a late night attempted robbery last night, police are looking for help identifying the suspect.

Around 11 p.m., Feb. 26, a man walked into the 7-Eleven at 1590 Summit Dr. in Sahali and demanded money from the clerk, according to an RCMP media release. When the clerk refused to hand over any money, the suspect fled the store on foot.

RCMP describe the suspect as a First Nations man, about 5’9” tall with two missing front teeth. At the time of the incident he was wearing a blue bandana over his face, a black baseball cap and a dark hoody.

Police say he did not threaten the clerk or brandish a weapon.

Kamloops RCMP are looking for any information the public can provide as to the identity of the suspect. Tips can be called in to the police at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
