Waterloo Regional Police have released a composite image of a male suspect wanted in connection with a robbery in Kitchener.

Police say at around 9:16 p.m. on May 13, a teenage male was walking on Chandler Drive towards a shopping area on Strasburg Road when he was approached by another man who demanded his cell phone and pulled out a knife.

Investigators say the victim tried to fight off the attacker but two other males approached. The victim was held down and the two males took an undisclosed amount of cash from the teen.

After the attackers fled, the victim realized he had been stabbed in the hip/buttocks area, police said.

The man believed to have stabbed the victim is described as white, approximately 25 years old, 5’7" with a thin face and crooked top teeth. He was wearing a mustard-coloured hoodie with black strings and black handwriting, a navy blue baseball cap and Nike baseball gloves with lines on the fingers.

Police say the suspect spoke with a lot of slang and walked with a limp.

Anyone with information is being asked to call Central Detectives at 519-650-8500 ext. 4499 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
