Police are asking the public for assistance identifying a man involved in a robbery at a Strathroy Walmart Sunday evening.

The male had entered the store and allegedly threatened an employee, saying he had a knife, before fleeing with over $2,000 in merchandise.

The goods were however discarded as the suspect fled, and all the stolen items were recovered.

Just minutes later, the same suspect was spotted in a pizza place, but with different clothing on.

He is described as a white male, 5’5-5’8 tall, with a slim build and brown hair. At Walmart, he was wearing a leather jacket and a ball cap.
