Suspect arrested after Richmond Centre robbery

A Richmond Centre armed robbery has left one suspect in custody and a number of people shaken.

A YouTube video shows the tail end of what appears to be a failed carjacking by at least one of two suspects involved in the Richmond Centre store robbery.

The 30-second video shows RCMP officers taking into custody a man who had been inside a vehicle at Brighouse Square, at Cook and No. 3 Road, directly across the street from Richmond Centre.

According to the eyewitness who posted the video, the robbers tried to seize a woman's car in order to flee the scene.

A former security guard named Dave intervened, following the two suspects following the robbery of a store at Richmond Centre. He then held one man down while the other fled, the YouTube poster wrote in the description.

"One shot was fired in the car but luckily there were no casualties," the YouTube poster said. "Police arrived at the scene promptly and arrested the suspect."
