Here is our report from Sunday Night just after the robbery occurred.
Jassy was working alone at her corner gas station on Gordon Dr. Sunday night when a man wearing a dark hoodie and handkerchief partially covering his face burst through the door and pointed a black handgun at her head.
Thinking quickly, she hit the silent alarm activation as he was coming through the door.
"He shouted at me to 'Get down on the ground'," she said.
A second man, also with his face covered, then came into the store and pulled a plastic shopping bag out of his pocket.
The armed duo stole less than $250 and were last seen headed west in the direction of several apartment buildings on Cook Rd at around 7 p.m.
RCMP had the area cordoned off in all directions and a K-9 Unit was also brought in.
If you have seen anything suspicious you are asked to call Kelowna RCMP at (250) 762-3300 or remain anonymous by calling Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
