For Immediate Release:12-Oct-2017 @ 1:18 PM
MRU #:17R128

The Edmonton Police Service is investigating two incidents that are believed to be connected to a larger Strathcona County RCMP file.

Downtown Division officers responded to a report of a carjacking on Wednesday, Oct. 11, 2017 around 11:45 p.m. in the area of 118 Avenue and 104 Street, where a woman’s black Ford Fusion was stolen.

 

Shortly thereafter, Northwest Division officers responded to a report of a personal robbery of another woman around 11:55 p.m. in the area of 106 Avenue and 92 Street. The suspect vehicle involved in this incident matched the description of the one reported in the carjacking incident just 10 minutes earlier.

 

The suspicious vehicle then fled to Sherwood Park (please refer to the RCMP for further information).

 

It is believed these two incidents that occurred in Edmonton are related and police continue to investigate.

 

Anyone with information about the suspects or incidents is encouraged to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.tipsubmit.com/start.htm.
