With the assistance of RCMP Police Dog Services, Wetaskiwin RCMP determined that two males entered the store with a handgun and bear spray.
The suspects used the bear spray on the victims, took money and cell phones before fleeing the scene. Police Dog Services tracked the suspects to the alley where it appeared there was a vehicle waiting for them.

The suspects are described as:
• Two males believed to be Caucasian;
• Both wearing dark clothing and bandanas over their face;
• One male carrying bear spray;
