RCMP in Portage la Prairie are looking for five violent men suspected in a robbery of a local business last month.

Police say shortly after midnight on October 10, the men entered a store and stole a quantity of alcohol. They also allegedly assaulted a security guard who tried to stop them.

All five suspects are described as aboriginal in appearance and drove away in a dark coloured van with an unknown licence plate.

RCMP also say it’s important for businesses to update their video surveillance equipment, as sharper quality images can help identify suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to contact investigators at (204) 857-4445 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
