Sylvan Lake RCMP are asking for the public’s help in locating three suspects involved in a robbery at a Hinshaw Drive apartment on Sunday (Nov. 30).

The victim was walking up stairs to his apartment at around 1:45 a.m. when he was attacked by a man who struck him in the face several times. The victim received a large gash on his chin as a result of the attack.

Three suspects fled with jewelry and the victim’s car and car keys.

The first suspect (pictured) is described as a Caucasian male with long, straight blonde hair and a full beard. Police say he has a normal voice, and was wearing a beige jacket, brown boots and blue jeans. His jacket has a green crest in the left chest area.

The second suspect is described as a Caucasian male with short hair of an unknown colour, and is said by police to be very muscular. He was wearing a jacket at the time of the incident, and didn’t speak.

The third suspect is described as a short and skinny Caucasian female with a full-sleeve arm tattoo. She wore a red tank top, running shoes and dark blue sweat pants, and wasn’t wearing a jacket.

The victim’s car, a four-door black 2014 Mazda2, bears the Alberta licence plate K65217.

RCMP on Tuesday released a composite sketch of the first suspect, and are asking the public to contact them with information on any of the three suspects involved.

Information may be provided by contacting the Sylvan Lake RCMP detachment at 403-858-7200, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
