The Saskatoon Police Service are asking for information on a pair of robberies.
The first happened Friday around 11:50 p.m. at the Mac’s store at 430 Russell Road. A suspect reportedly came into the store and pulled out a baseball bat before making off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The suspect is described as a white male between five feet, four inches and five feet, six inches tall with blonde hair and light coloured eyes. Police said he was wearing a black jacket, black pants and a black mask.
Police are also looking into an unrelated robbery from just after midnight Monday morning.
A man reportedly took off with cash from a business on the 1000 block of 8th Street. No weapon was seen and no one was injured.
Police sent a K9 unit but couldn’t manage to track down the suspect. It’s believed he may have gotten on a bicycle after initially running away on foot.
The suspect is described as a 60-year-old man, five feet, six inches tall with a thin build. At the time of the robbery, he was reportedly wearing jeans and a red winter coat with black sleeves. Police said an officer recovered the jacket after the man threw it off during the pursuit.
Anyone with information on either of these robberies is being asked to call police at 306-975-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
