Calgary police want to speak with witnesses of downtown robbery

Calgary police hope to talk to two people who witnessed a robbery downtown last week and stopped to help the victim.

On Sept. 22 after 11 p.m., a man in his 70s was walking near 6 Avenue S.W. and 7 Street S.W. when he was approached by a man and a woman “who demanded his jacket” at gunpoint.

“The suspects grabbed the man’s arms and pushed him to the ground, striking his head on the pavement,” police said in a news release Monday.

“They took the senior’s jacket and fled.”

The man was taken to hospital with minor injuries, police said.
