On Aug. 13, 2019, at approximately 8:20 a.m., Shellbrook RCMP responded to the report of an employee who had been struck by a pickup truck at a gas station in Holbein, SK.
Initial police investigation revealed that two young adult males fuelled their pickup truck and attempted to leave without paying. The employee intervened by jumping in the driver's side of the cabin to prevent the vehicle and the two males from leaving. The driver responded by aggressively driving through the parking lot to remove the employee from the vehicle. The employee was ejected and the two males managed to get away.
The employee was transported by ambulance to hospital in Prince Albert for what appeared to be serious but non-life threatening injuries.
Shellbrook RCMP are requesting the public's assistance in locating the vehicle and the two males involved in the theft and hit and run.
The two males were seen travelling in a matte black Ford F-350 Harley Davidson edition pickup truck which appears to have been fully coated in rocker guard/box liner material.
It is believed that the two males are travelling towards the west.
A surveillance video captured images of one of the males wearing a black Atlanta Braves baseball cap with a red brim, a black hoodie with large white text in the front and glasses.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of the two males and/or the Ford F-350 Harley Davidson pickup truck involved in this incident is asked to contact Shellbrook RCMP at 306-747-2606.
Information can also be submitted anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at saskcrimestoppers.com.
Photos of the pickup truck and the young adult male are attached.
