Robbery at knifepoint and stolen machinery in Kitimat

Police looking for help involving stolen machinery and a robbery at knifepoint.

The Kitimat RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance with two files, one of which involved a woman robbed at knifepoint.

On August 6, the RCMP were called on an incident which occurred just after 4 p.m. at Columbia Avenue and Dyke Road, near the Jed Stumps Trailer Park.

RCMP say a female was robbed of her black Adidas string bag, which contained personal items.

The robbery was done by three male youth, about 15 to 16 years old, and described by RCMP in their news release as “non-white.”

Police say all three youth were wearing t-shirts and shorts, had short black hair and were approximately six feet tall. One wore a black t-shirt and another wore a black baseball cap. Two of the youth brandished small knives, similar to a Swiss Army Knife or Leatherman style knife.

The youths fled on foot towards Dyke Road and the Giant Spruce area.

The other incident RCMP are looking for assistance with solving involves two pieces of machinery found running without operators on Saunders Road on August 7.

RCMP found that the two pieces of machinery, which weren’t described in the news release, were stolen from a local business between 6 p.m. on August 6 and 5 a.m. on August 7. The machinery would have been driven to the location they were found.

Because the distance from the point of theft to where they were found was over 3 km, police say it’s possible that the thieves either walked back down Saunders Road or were driven from the area.

Anyone with information on either of these files are asked to contact the RCMP at 250-632-7111 or call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
