Police seek public’s assistance in catching robbery suspects

Barrie police seek the public’s assistance in identifying two suspects wanted in a robbery of a Rogers store.
On Thursday, August 22, at approximately 6 p.m., two suspects entered the store, located at 44 Cedar Pointe Drive. Once in the store, the suspects walked to the counter where they confronted the employee, displayed a weapon and made a demand for merchandise.
The employee complied with the demands and provided the suspects with access to the merchandise, which they placed into a duffel bag. The suspects then fled from the store on foot, where they are believed to have gotten into a waiting vehicle in the adjacent plaza at 74 Cedar Pointe Drive. The employee was not physically injured.
The first suspect is described as a male, 5’11” – 6’ tall with an average build and wearing dark or black jeans, dark grey or black hooded sweatshirt and a black mask. The second suspect is described as male, about 6′ tall with an average to thin build and wearing a red hooded, pullover sweatshirt, with “Roots” written in white lettering on the left sleeve, baggy pants, and red and black running shoes. He was carrying a dark duffel bag with “NIKE” written on it.
They were resorted driving a silver two-door, newer model car with tinted windows, and a low-riding chassis.
