Okotoks RCMP have released a sketch of a man suspected to be involved in the stabbing of an employee at the Okotoks Fas Gas last month.
The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, between the ages of 25 and 30 years old, with curly, medium-blonde hair, medium build and a short, full-face beard. He is approximately five-feet, seven or five-feet, eight inches tall and was wearing a brown hoodie at the time. He was driving a black pickup truck, possibly a Chevrolet Sierra.
Okotoks RCMP are looking to the public for help identifying the suspect.
Okotoks RCMP Sgt. Donnan Rorison said they don’t have much information to go on so far in the case and hope someone will recognize the person in the sketch.
In particular, police are looking for the driver and occupants of a gold car that left the Fas Gas at approximately 7:50 p.m. It’s believed they may have seen the suspect and vehicle and may be able to provide more detail.
“We’re looking for the people in the gold vehicle because we think they may have seen something,” she said.
Around 8 p.m. on Sept. 20 a single male suspect driving a black pickup truck pulled into the Okotoks Fas Gas station and filled his truck. When finished, he walked into the store and walked around before approaching an employee behind the counter and stabbed the employee once in the abdomen. The suspect fled the scene in his truck, heading westbound.
Anyone with who was at the Fas Gas between 7:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Sept. 20 or may have information about this incident is asked to contact RCMP at 403-995-6400 or 403-938-4202.
