Masked man with gun robs Saanich liquor store

Handgun used in robbery

Police are searching for the suspect in an armed robbery Wednesday afternoon on Vancouver Island. 

CTV News reports a liquor store in Saanich was robbed by a man with a handgun at 4:25 p.m. The suspect, wearing a black ski mask, approached the till carrying a handgun and demanding cash. 

The man took the cash drawer and ran down the street.

"We're appealing to witnesses or anybody in the area that was driving by or walking by that may have seen a male running southbound on Shelbourne from Maude Hunters wearing a black hoodie, black sweatpants, possibly wearing a black ski mask, although that may have been taken off after the robbery," said Const. Markus Anastasiades.
