ROBBERY ATTEMPT - OTTAWA, ONTARIO
Mar 24, 2016
Bulletin 2016-2078

     

All subjects are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

On Thursday, March 24th 2016 at approximately 3:30pm three males (one subject shown above) were involved in what Ottawa Police believe was an attempted robbery of a retail jewellery store located in the 2400 block of Bank Street, Ottawa, Ontario.  One male was buzzed into the store, said he had $1,000 to spend on a family member, looked around for several minutes, then left the store.  Two other males were seen loitering in the parking lot outside.  The first male returned to the store, was buzzed in again but this time the two other males rushed the door presumably in an attempt to gain entry.  They were not successful even after shaking the door.  The owner said he was calling the Police and all three fled.

Police believe these three subjects may have been involved in other retail jewellery store robberies over the past five months; one at Carlingwood Mall in Ottawa (JVC Bulletin #2016-2032) and Billings Bridge (JVC Bulletin #2016-2034).

Subject 1 - Male/black, 18 to 19 years old, approx. 5'9" tall, wearing baggy grey sweatpants, a black Nike hoodie with a white strip across the front, carrying a "Jansport" backpack.  Subject 2 - Male/black, 18 to 19 years old, approx. 6' tall, wearing a dark grey sweater with the hood up, a black neck warmer pulled up covering his moth and nose, and black jeans.  Subject 3 - Male/black, 18 to 19 years old, approx. 6' tall, thin build and wearing a grey hoodie pulled all the way down to conceal a portion of his face.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Ottawa Police Robbery Unit 613-236-1222, Ext 5116 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
