Kitscoty RCMP are seeking the culprit in a recent armed robbery.
Yesterday afternoon, around 4:30, police were dispatched to the site of the robbery: the Wheatfield Inn Bar in Kitscoty.
A lone male reportedly entered the bar through the back door. He sat briefly at a VLT machine before going up to the bar to ask an employee for change.
When the bartender opened the cash register, the man produced a can of bear spray and demanded the money from the till.
A struggle ensued resulting the bartender getting sprayed in the face.
The suspect fled the bar with an undisclosed amount of cash and was seen driving away from the scene in a white SUV with Saskatchewan plates.
The male is described as a thin, white man, between 5’10” and 6′ tall, with a shaved head (and evidently, balding).
