Calgary police are hoping that photos of clothing will help jog the memory of citizens who may have information about a suspected robbery and assault on Calgary Transit earlier this year.
According to police, at 2:15 p.m. on Oct. 2, at the 1 Street West station aboard a westbound CTrain, five teenagers allegedly robbed two young boys of their cellphones and a sweater. One person who tried to intervene was allegedly assaulted, police said.
Among the five teens allegedly connected to the robbery and assault, three females have been identified, leaving two males yet to be located and identified by the police.
Due to privacy legislation and the Youth Criminal Justice Act, investigators can’t provide pictures of the teenagers’ faces. They have released CCTV images of the clothes they were wearing.
The first teenager wore a light-colored hoodie under a red puffer jacket, paired with black jeans and distinct white sneakers featuring red accents and black laces. The youth is described as approximately 5’10”, slim build, with brown, “winged” hair, according to police.
The second teenager was spotted wearing a crossbody bag over a white T-shirt beneath a black zip-up sweater and a black vest, along with blue jeans, police said. He was described as approximately 6 feet tall, slim, and has longer, dark hair.
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Calgary police at 403-266-1234.
