CARLETON PLACE, ON – The Lanark County Ontario Provincial Police are investigating a robbery that occurred at a Carleton Place gas station.
On August 26, 2013 at approximately 12:00 a.m., the Lanark County OPP attended the Pioneer Gas on Highway #7 regarding a robbery. They were told that two males entered the store, one with what appeared to be a handgun. The suspects demanded cash from the lone male employee. The employee was not able to open the register and was stuck in the head by one of the suspects. The suspects left the store without any cash or property. They were seen leaving the scene in a beige or grey minivan heading eastbound on Highway # 7 towards Ottawa. Both front tires on the minivan were missing hub caps and the rear passenger side tail light was broken. The employee suffered a minor injury, which did not require medical attention.
The suspects are described as:
Suspect #1 – a black male in his late teens to early twenties. He was wearing a black and white jacket with white sleeves and the number 5 on the left upper shoulder. There was a triangle on the upper right shoulder that may have been an Oakland Raiders logo. He was also wearying a grey mask, black hoodie and light blue or grey pants.
Suspect #2 – a black male in his late teens to early twenties. He was wearing a grey hoodie, white mask and white t-shirt with baggy shorts and high white socks.
