The Edmonton Police Service released surveillance images of two carjacking suspects on Tuesday as they work to make arrests in connection with a robbery in the northwest part of the city late last month.
At about 11:30 a.m. on Aug. 30, police said someone reported to them that a woman had been carjacked.
They said she was sitting in her parked car in the area of 121 Avenue and 103 Street when a white sedan pulled up behind her.
“A female exited the sedan and approached her (the victim) on foot, before requesting that she call a cab for her,” police said in a news release on Tuesday. “As the complainant was helping the female, a male exited the same vehicle, approached her and demanded the keys to her vehicle.
“It was reported that the male then forcibly stole the complainant’s black 2009 Hyundai Accent and fled the area.”
According to police, the stolen vehicle was later found in Valleyview, Alta., by RCMP.
