Police look to public to help in attempted armed robbery case

Incident occurred in a parking lot on Oct. 10

The North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP are investigating an attempted robbery with a weapon that occurred Oct. 10 at approximately 8:30 p.m.

The incident occurred in a parking lot in the 200 block of Evans Street when a man approached two people in a parked car and threatened them with a weapon, demanding drugs or money.

The quick-thinking victim reversed the vehicle, and the man then fled on foot and got into a dark coloured pick-up truck parked nearby.

The truck is described as dark in colour, possibly a Dodge Ram with a lift kit and chrome on the back.

The man is described as white, approximately 5 foot 10, slim build, approximately 170 lbs and approximately 30 years old.

He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled over his head, a white facial covering that had red on the mouth (possibly an animated mouth with blood) and dark coloured pants or jeans.

Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to call the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522 or, if you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)
