Around a quarter to 10 last night RCMP say a man went into a business in the 11-hundred block of 107th Street in North Battleford and attacked the business owner with a hatchet. He made off with a small amount of merchandise from the store. The business owner’s injuries were considered non-life threatening and he was treated in hospital.
The suspect is a male with a slim build, about 5’8″ tall, 140 pounds, thick shoulder length hair that appeared to have been dyed red at some point. He was wearing a faded grey bunny gu with the word RAW in large letters on the front, a red bandana around his neck, a red ball cap with a black brim, black sweat pants, white Nike running shoes and was carrying a small purple back pack.
Anyone with information is asked to contact RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
