StarMetro Edmonton - - Edmonton - MeTrO sTaff

Ed­mon­ton po­lice are ask­ing the pub­lic to help them iden­tify a man who al­legedly stole a phone from a woman who was in a wheelchair.

On Wed­nes­day, Oct. 4, a woman wait­ing for a DATS bus near 16 Av­enue and 48 Street around 7 a.m. told po­lice that a male sus­pect had ap­proached her and asked to bor­row her phone to call his grand­mother.

When she handed him the phone, the man al­legedly ran away with it.

The sus­pect is de­scribed as a Cau­casian or Indige­nous male in his 20s. He is about 5’10’’ and weighs about 190 pounds.

Po­lice are re­leas­ing video and stills in the hopes he can be iden­ti­fied.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call po­lice.
