RCMP seek masked men after armed robbery in Steinbach

  • Print

Steinbach RCMP are asking for the public’s help in finding a pair of masked men who held up a local business at gunpoint last week.

Officers were called to 1st Street in Steinbach shortly after 4 p.m. on Thursday after a man, dressed in black and wearing a balaclava, walked into a cash-dispensing business and pointed a long, barrelled firearm at the owner. The suspect then demanded cash from the register and safe before fleeing on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.

He then got into a nearby vehicle, a single-cab, red 1996 Chevrolet 1500 pickup truck that had been seen circling the block, and was driven away by another balaclava-wearing male.

Nobody was injured during the incident.

The gun-wielding suspect is described as a white man in his early 20s, about 5’10" with a slim build. The truck, which may have been stolen from Morris, is described as having a large amount of rust and no tailgate.

Anybody with any information on this incident should call the Steinbach RCMP at (204) 326-1234 or Crime Stoppers at (204) 780-TIPS (8477).
