His face was covered and he was wearing dark gloves.  The second suspect was smaller but still appeared to be male, and was wearing a dark coloured hoodie (hood up), a jacket with the Avengers logo on the back and dark coloured gloves, pants and boots.   The suspects may have been driving a newer light coloured compact car (also pictured).

The Loss Prevention Office at Save-On Foods in Lake Country contacted RCMP at 1:15 on Tuesday, February 20th, 2018 after he was threatened with a knife by a shoplifter.  THE LPO observed a couple stealing groceries and confronted them as they were leaving the store.  The male pulled a knife and they got away in a newer grey Ford Edge that may have been stolen.  The couple seems to be making their way through the valley helping themselves to products at several different grocery stores.  If you can identify these two alleged thieves please contact RCMP or anonymously to Crime Stoppers to be eligible for a reward.
