Blackfalds RCMP are searching for two male suspects alleged to have stolen a car at gunpoint New Year’s Day.

RCMP responded to a complaint of an armed robbery on Range Road 272A near Blackfalds at 9:30 p.m.

Four males sat in two separate cars, when a green Dodge Ram truck stopped on the road. Two males from the truck showed the occupants what appeared to be shotguns, took the keys to the occupied Mitsubishi Lancer, and slashed the tires on the second vehicle, rendering it undriveable.

One suspect then fled in a grey, four-door Lancer with licence plate CDS4455, and the other fled in the Dodge Ram.

Both male suspects are described as Caucasian and being in their early twenties.
