Police in Vancouver, British Columbia, released dramatic footage on April 27 showing a “takeover-style” robbery committed at a high-fashion boutique in the city’s downtown late last year as part of an appeal for information from the public.
The video shows two masked men storm into a Gucci store on the evening of December 9 and spray an employee in the face with bear spray. The suspects proceed to ransack the store, taking approximately $20,000 CAD (USD$15,559) worth of merchandise before fleeing the scene, police said.
A separate surveillance camera captured the men removing their masks outside of the store and revealing their faces. Vancouver Police urged anyone who recognizes either of the suspects to come forward as soon as possible. Credit: Vancouver Police via Storyful
