Barrie Police are looking for the public’s assistance in identifying two suspects wanted in a robbery of a Rogers store.

On Thursday, August 22, at approximately 6:00 p.m., two suspects entered the store, which is located at 44 Cedar Pointe Drive in Barrie. 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.
