  Pickering Gas Station Robbed

Dec 27, 2017 14:34 ET

Investigators are hoping the public can help identify four suspects involved in an armed robbery of a Pickering gas station.

At approximately 4 a.m. on Sunday, December 24, 2017, a lone male entered the Husky gas station on Bayly Street and was seen looking out at the gas pumps. Moments later, three masked males rushed into the store, one armed with a shotgun and another with a handgun. The first male who entered the store also put on a mask.

The employee was forced to open the till and was struck several times before the suspects exited the store with a quantity of cash and jumped into a dark blue SUV. The licence plate of the vehicle was recorded, however it turned out to be a stolen vehicle. The employee was taken to hospital for treatment of non-life threating injuries.

Suspect #1 is described as a male, black, 18-20 years old, with a stocky build.

Suspect #2 is described as a male, black, 18-20 years old, brandishing a shotgun, wearing a ski mask.
