Saskatoon police are searching for a suspect who robbed two women while they were withdrawing money from ATMs, threatening them both with knives.

Police released video from Nov. 3 showing the suspect wielding a knife, robbing and pushing over one of the victims, who was 63-years-old.

The video also shows the man threatening another woman with a machete later that same day at another location.

The first robbery took place around 1:00 p.m. CST on the 100 block of 1st Avenue South. The second robbery happened at 9:45 p.m. on the 2800 block of 8th Street East.

Police did not say how much money was stolen.

The suspect is described as being 5'10" and of a slim build. He was wearing a dark hoodie and covered his face during both robberies. But, he did wear the same grey and red shoes, as can be seen on the video.
