Casa Loma bar robbed Saturday night
Whitehorse RCMP are looking for two suspects after the Casa Loma bar was robbed Saturday night.
Const. Dean Hoogland says the robbery happened at the bar on the Alaska Highway in Porter Creek just after 11 p.m.
"Two individuals who had entered the bar went behind the bar, approached the bartender and demanded money," he said. "The bartender refused. One of the suspects pushed the bartender to the floor. They grabbed some cash from the till and fled on foot."
No weapon was used in the robbery.
Hoogland says when the two came into the bar, one of the men was wearing a balaclava and the other was wearing an ATV helmet. Both were hearing hoodies.
Police found the helmet.
The suspects are described as being in their 20s. One is described as about 5 foot, 7 inches and 160 pounds; the other as about 5 foot, 4 inches and 180-190 pounds.
