A 24-year-old man has been arrested in connection to an armed robbery at a Saskatoon convenience store.
This comes one day after police released information about three suspects involved in the same incident at Westmount Foods.
On April 11, four people entered the store and threatened an employee with a handgun before making off with some cash.
One suspect was arrested Monday evening by Saskatoon police.
He faces several charges including robbery, wearing a disguise, and possessing a weapon while on probation.
Earlier this month, Westmount owner Hamid Khan said he was fed up with armed robberies at his 29th Street West location.
He moved from Pakistan last summer, and said he regrets coming to the city.
On Tuesday, Khan told CKOM News the Saskatoon police chief paid him a visit to pledge further support.
“He said, ‘We are always here.’ And I am seeing the police here everyday; some people are coming here and patrolling – so it’s good,” Khan said.
The store has been robbed at least three times since late December.
Khan said he’s spent a lot of money on surveillance cameras – which is evident in the high-quality images taken of the remaining suspects – both inside and outside the store.
“We are working on some other steps,” he said.
When asked if that means he’ll stay in Saskatoon, Khan said he’s not sure.
Turns out, the community made an impression on the store owner since the news broke last week.
“Saskatoon people are good… I got a lot of support from people, and everybody came and they definitely gave their words and support,” he said.
“I definitely appreciate it and I’m thankful to those.”
The investigation into the Westmount robberies, including the search for the remaining three suspects, continues.
People are reminded to contact the Saskatoon Police Service or Crime Stoppers if they have any information that may assist in these investigations.
