Culprit wore Tapout-brand zip-up sweatshirt in both holdups
Calgary police have released video surveillance showing what they believe is the same man robbing two convenience stores earlier this fall.
The first robbery happened at the Mac’s Convenience Store at 1264 68th Street S.E. on Sept. 26 at about 3:30 a.m. MT.
A man armed with a knife demanded the lone store clerk hand over money. He then grabbed the entire register and ran from the store.
The suspect is Caucasian and wore a black bandana over his face. He also wore a grey Tapout-brand zip-up sweatshirt with the hood up and light-blue jeans.
The second robbery happened Oct. 6 at the 7-Eleven store at 4527 Eighth Avenue S.E. around 5 a.m. MT.
After asking for a carton of cigarettes, the suspect pulled out a knife and demanded money.
The employee gave him an undisclosed amount of cash.
The suspect fled in a stolen early-1990s red and white GMC or Chevrolet pick-up truck.
This offender, who didn’t wear a mask during, had on the same kind of Tapout-brand sweatshirt as the first offender, police said.
He looked between 30- and 40-years-old, about 5'8" with a muscular build.
He has blue eyes and short, light-brown hair and a goatee. The offender also has a tattoo on the right side of his neck.
Anyone with information about the robberies is asked to call police or Crime Stoppers.
