At around 5 p.m., police received reports of an armed robbery at the Apex Road Quick Stop, according to a news release from RCMP. The suspect had fled by the time they arrived at the store.

There were no injuries.

The suspect was wearing black pants, a black jacket, a skull mask, white gloves and carried a fish-filleting knife.

Police are asking anyone who may have seen the suspect fleeing, or have any other information on the incident, to contact them at 867-975-0123 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

    This guy was neither staying warm, nor safe. Absolute disregard for the Apex quickstop mantra.

    I can’t imagine what the clerk or employees where going through. I hope someone recognizes his body figure and hope he gets caught!

      You are as bad a thief as the guy in the article. Think up your own name instead of stealing mine.

    I hope the guy gets caught and does time. A lot of young kids work at this store, and as a parent, I would not be a very happy camper knowing that my child was threatened at knife point. Catch this idiot.
