Police received a 911 call reporting two males acting suspiciously in the 800 block of Grey Avenue about 6:30 this morning. They were reported to be carrying an axe and had masks over their faces.
Just three minutes later police received a report that a convenience store in the 700 block of Central Avenue had been robbed by two men matching the description in the prior call. The employee in the convenience store was not hurt. The male suspects escaped with an undisclosed amount of money.
Shortly afterward police recovered a vehicle in the 1200 block of Avenue P South believed to have been used by the suspects. That vehicle had been stolen earlier from another location.
Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to contact the Saskatoon Police Service at 975-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
