An employee gave into demands of two men with knives while working the graveyard shift at a Langford convenience store.

Three males entered the Langford Mac's Convenience store,  in the early morning hours of Feb.13.

The two men with knives demanded the employee open the tills. The men put cash, cigarettes, lighters and food items into a backpack. The third male stood by the door as a lookout.

The first male is described as five-foot-five wearing a light grey hoodie with dark grey stripes. He was wearing a balaclava and winter gloves. He had dark-coloured pants and dark shoes with white laces. He was either in his late teens or early 20s and had a dark backpack with light-coloured writing on the pocket.

The second male was  five-foot-ten inches tall and wearing a red hoodie with a white design on the sleeves and on the front. He too was wearing a balaclava and winter gloves. He wore grey pants and is believed to be in his late teens or early 20s.

There is no description available for the third suspect.

West Shore RCMP were called at 2:25 a.m. and arrived on scene at the Jacklin Road store.

West Shore RCMP and the Police Dog Section were on scene and found a track that led to a possible location where a getaway vehicle may have been.

West Shore RCMP is asking anyone with information to contact the detachment by calling 250-474-2264 or to contact Crimestoppers at 188-222-TIPS (8477).
