RCMP Crest LogoRCMP in Portage la Prairie are looking for a man who allegedly threatened a woman and demanded money from her.

The 61-year-old victim was walking to her vehicle Thursday night after leaving a financial institution on Saskatchewan Avenue East.

She was approached by a man who demanded money, but she refused. That’s when, police say, he aimed a pistol at her with his hands, but no weapon was seen. He asked for money again but eventually left, empty-handed.

The suspect is described as approximately 5’8″ with a larger build and was wearing a dark coloured winter coat with a hood.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Portage la Prairie RCMP at (204) 857-4445 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
