Male Enters Strathmore Store Brandishing Knife, Demanding Money

Strathmore, Alberta – On November 22, 2019 Strathmore RCMP received a complaint of a robbery attempt occurring at the Strathmore Convenience Store on 3rd Avenue in the Town of Strathmore.

In the early evening a disguised male entered the store brandishing a knife and demanded money. The male became spooked and fled the location without obtaining any money. The circulation of some video footage led to the identification of two individuals responsible for this offence as well as a theft from the local Walmart occurring a short time earlier.
