On Friday Jan 9, at approximately 8:30 pm a lone male attempted to rob the Jim Bob’s Mini Mart on Warren Ave in Kimberley. The male entered the business produced a knife and demanded cash. The clerk hit the panic alarm and told the subject the police were on their way. The male fled on foot without any cash.

A Police Dog followed a track to the Kimbrook Apartments parking lot located behind Jim Bob’s. Fresh tire tracks in the snow indicate it’s likely the subject left the area in a vehicle.

The subject was wearing a red winter coat with a hood and had covered his face with a red scarf. He had jeans and black skater type shoes.
