Cops search for robbery suspects
Police are looking for four men after a special-needs Kamloops high school student was mugged on the way to class yesterday morning (Jan. 20).
Kamloops RCMP Const. Rose Dunsmore said the victim, an 18-year-old girl who attends NorKam secondary, was walking in the area of 13th Street and Sherbrooke Avenue on the North Shore just before 9 a.m. when she was approached by the quartet.
Investigators believe the victim was kicked from behind, causing her to fall to the ground, before being robbed.
Stolen was an orange down-filled jacket with a broken zipper and a Twilight backpack, featuring a picture of wolves.
The four suspects are described as white, taller than five-foot-eight and in their late-teens or early-20s.
The first suspect has blonde hair, brown eyes and a lower lip piercing, and was wearing dark clothes and white running shoes.
The second suspect has black, chin-length hair, and was wearing a black hoodie with ripped black jeans and white running shoes.
The third suspect was wearing dark clothing with a hoodie pulled over his head.
The fourth suspect was wearing a black hoodie, jeans and brown shoes.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
