The Lloydminster RCMP are seeking public assistance in tracking down suspects in a brutal car jacking that sent one victim to the hospital with non life threatening injuries.

The RCMP responded to a call about a robbery shortly after 2 a.m. Thursday, when two people were assaulted after being yanked from their vehicle in the parking lot of Microtel Inn and Suites.

The unknown vehicle was stolen, but quickly recovered within city limits by police.

Three people are currently in custody and cops are looking for more suspects associated with the case.
“All of the individuals in this incident are known to each other,” said Const. Grant Kirzinger.

“We believe because of that, this is an isolated incidence.

“The police officers that were working when this occurred acted quickly resulting in the recovery of the stolen vehicle and the arrest of three suspects,”  said Kirzinger, who would not reveal the make of the car, or where it was eventually located.

The investigation into the car jacking is ongoing, said Kirzinger, and anyone with information is asked to contact the Lloydminster RCMP. 

Or call Crime Stoppers at 1-8000-222-8477. 

Callers do not give their names, but could earn a cash reward for tips that lead to an arrest.
