Attempted Robbery in HVGB

Over the weekend, RCMP in Happy Valley-Goose Bay (HVGB) was called to an attempted armed robbery.

Sergeant Guy Caines is with the Goose Bay RCMP.

He says yesterday at approximately 8:30pm, RCMP responded to a complaint of an attempted armed robbery at a Labrador Mini Mart located on White Crescent.

Caines says an unidentified masked suspect entered the store with a knife and demanded money from the clerk.

He says the clerk quickly ran out of the store and was then followed by the suspect seconds later.

The would-be robber then fled the scene and ran off into a wooded area behind the store.

Caines says at this point in time, RCMP believe the suspect did not get away with anything.

The suspect has been described to be approximately 5'6" in height, of medium build, wearing a black jacket and a cloth mask with eye holes cut in it.

Caines adds there were no injuries to anyone during the incident.

The matter is still under investigation with assistance from the HVGB General Investigative Unit.
