The Calgary police service are seeking further information about an attempted robbery that took place at Lucky 7 Convenience Store.
Police say just after 10 pm yesterday, a man burst into the store demanding money from the clerk, who was at the back assisting customers. The first assailant then attacked the clerk, stabbing him with a knife, before fleeing the store. The customers with the clerk were not harmed, and administered first aid.
The clerk was transported to hospital in life-threatening condition, but has since been upgraded to stable condition.
Witness accounts also say there was a woman brandishing a knife outside the store at the time the attack took place.
The male suspect is described as being in his 20’s, roughly 5’6″ tall, and was wearing a dark hoodie with a green design on the back, blue jeans, and a white baseball hat at the time of the attack.
The female suspect is believed to be Caucasian, about 5′ tall, and has a slim build.
Any information can be reported on the CPS non-emergency line at 403-266-1234, or at Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
