The Regina Police Service is continuing its investigation into a robbery that occurred Thursday, February 25, 2016, at a telecommunications store in the 4600 block of Gordon Road. There have been recent, similar robberies in other western Canadian cities and there is concern that these perpetrators will victimize more businesses in this city and the rest of the province.
On February 25, 2016, at approximately 11:00 a.m. police were dispatched to a store on the 4600 block of Gordon Road for the complaint of a robbery. The preliminary investigation indicates four males, with their faces covered, entered the business and aggressively demanded merchandise. The males took the 32 year-old employee to the back of the store and secured him there. The suspects gathered up a substantial amount of electronic merchandise and exited, using the door at the rear of the store. There is not a great deal of information to give to describe the suspects except that each was male, black, about six feet tall with a medium build. They fled in an unknown direction. It is not known what type of vehicle they may have had. The employee sustained a number of injuries consistent with a physical assault but, fortunately, was not seriously injured.
Anyone with information that could help in this investigation is asked to contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS). The Regina Police Service thanks the public and the media for their assistance in this matter.
