At approximately 1:45 a.m., on Saturday, June 2, 2012, two male residents of St. Albert, Alberta, ages 15 and 16, were approached by 4 unknown males near the Solo Liquor Store parking lot and told to leave. The 4 males had come from a white 2005 to 2007 Ford or Dodge minivan with tinted windows that was parked near the Liquor Store.
The two St. Albert residents walked away from the area towards the Shoppers Drug Mart in the Tudor Glen area of St. Albert, Alberta. When the two youth reached the Shoppers Drug Mart parking lot, the white minivan approached them again and the 4 suspects got out of the van. 1 of the suspects sprayed the two youth in the face with what the youth described as "mace" and then the 4 suspects demanded that the 2 youth empty their pockets. The suspects took a cell phone and wallet from the 2 St. Albert youth and fled the scene in an unknown direction.
The 4 suspects were described to be possible of Lebanese descent. Two of the suspects were approximately 6 feet tall, while the other two were closer to 5 feet, 3 inches tall.
