Two Calgary men are facing numerous charges after what police are calling a bogus armed robbery in late September of this year.
The alleged fake robbery took place on Sunday September 25 at 11:40 p.m. Calgary police were called to the Esso gas station at 13615 Bonaventure Drive S.E. for reports of a violent robbery. When police arrived the victim told officers that he was robbed by a masked man who pushed him to the ground, punched him and put a knife to his throat. He also told investigators that he was forced to open the coin release.
While investigating the robbery police staged a Crime Stoppers re-enactment to try to find the person responsible for the robbery. But after several interviews and follow-up investigative work, officers have now determined that the robbery claim was fake and the alleged robbery was staged.
