The Edmonton Police Service is asking for help to identify one of two suspects in a liquor store robbery.

The robbery happened at a liquor store in the area of 132 Avenue and 59 Street on Jan. 28 shortly after 11 p.m.

According to police, one man walked around looking at merchandise until another man entered the store a minute later.

The second suspect, who was armed with pepper spray, is a man between 20-30 years old. He was wearing Adidas black pants with white stripes and a black hoodie with the word "Paris" written all over it. He was also wearing white, grey and black shoes.
