Police are hunting for a woman who robbed an Alberni smoothie bar at gunpoint.

RCMP were called to the Krush Smoothie and Juice Bar on 10th Avenue at 4:19 p.m. on July 8, RCMP Cst. Aaron Aasen said in a news release.

A lone female entered the store armed with a handgun and demanded cash. The suspect assaulted the employee during a struggle before fleeing south on 10th Avenue.

Police set up a perimeter and contained the area. A police dog found the suspect’s route of escape but never found her.

The suspect is described as a slim Caucasian female, approximately five-foot six tall with brown hair in a pony tail. She was wearing black yoga pants, white Nike shirt, brown Budweiser hat and black sunglasses.

Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to call RCMP at 250-723-2424 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
