City RCMP are looking for two suspects after an armed robbery at Chillabong’s Bar and Grill in southeast Red Deer on Saturday, November 12th.

It happened shortly after midnight when police say two men entered the bar on Dunlop street through the back door and demanded money from the cash register. Both men carried shotguns and wore face coverings during the robbery, then fled through the back door into the alley with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The first suspect is described as Caucasian, wearing a black hat, a white shirt under a black hoodie with DC in white lettering on the front, a mask, black gloves, black pants and white shoes. He was carrying a black pump action shotgun with a Red Dragon Supply sticker on it.

The second suspect is described as Caucasian, wearing a dark grey hoodie with a white emblem on the front, a mask, black gloves, black track pants with a white stripe down the leg and white shoes. He was carrying a silver, double barrel, pistol grip shotgun.

No one was injured during this robbery but if you have information about this incident, call Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575. If you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com.

Canada ends scoring drought at men’s World Cup but can’t hold off Croatia

Published on

Umm Şalāl ‘Alī – Canada wasted little time Sunday ending its scoring drought at the men’s World Cup via Alphonso Davies but could not hold off Croatia, losing 4-1 to end its hopes of reaching the tournament’s knockout round.

Ranked 12th in the world and runner-up to France four years ago in Russia, Croatia is filled with talent from top clubs and its class showed in rallying from an early 1-0 deficit.

Two goals by Andrej Kramaric and one by Marko Livaja accounted for the Croatian comeback. Lovro Majer added a stoppage-time goal in the 94th minute on a two-on-none attack.

The 41st-ranked Canadians started with a bang with a Milan Borjan goal kick finding Cyle Larin at midfield. Larin controlled the ball deftly with his foot and sent it over to Tajon Buchanan down the right flank. Buchanan surged ahead, took two touches, lifted his head and sent in a cross that Davies, soaring through the air high above fullback Josip Juranovic, headed home past goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic.

The Canadians came into the contest — the first-ever meeting between the two countries — needing at least a point to keep alive their hope of advancing out of the group stage with coach John Herdman calling it “one of those do-or-die games.”

Croatia also needed a result after tying Morocco 0-0 in its opener.
