Update - Robbery At A Downtown Business (release No. 2008-345)

The Saskatoon Police Service is investigating a number of robberies to downtown businesses.

Investigators have identified six robberies this month, believed to have been committed by the same suspect. In each robbery the suspect enters a small business in the downtown area, usually while only the owner or employer is inside. In most cases he enters the business carrying a white plastic bag. The suspect demands money and may threaten the victim. He then takes money from the til and flees on foot. The robberies have occurred during the day at small businesses on 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Avenue South.

The suspect is described as Caucasian with a dark complexion and dark hair, at least 6' in height with a thin build.

Anyone with information on these robberies is asked to call Saskatoon Police at 975-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
