Norway House RCMP seeking trio of men who attempted an armed robbery

Norway House RCMP are looking for three men who attempted an armed robbery of a local business before being interrupted by an arriving customer and fleeing on foot.

Two men entered the business around 8:30 p.m. Dec. 29 while the third stayed outside to serve as a lookout. One of the other men pointed a long gun at an employee of the business and demanded money. This was when a customer pulling into the parking lot prompted the would-be robbers to flee.

Norway House RCMP say they have identified two of the men they believed to be involved and are asking for the public's assistance in locating 25-year-old Tyler Ray Muswagon and Brendon Keith Muswagon, also 25, both of whom are Norway House residents. Both are wanted for robbery with a firearm, disguise with intent to commit an offence, possession of a weapon when possession was not allowed, and failure to comply with a recognizance order.  Tyler Muswagon is also wanted for pointing a firearm and possession of a weapon contrary to a court order.

RCMP says anyone who sees these men should not approach them as they are considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information on their whereabouts or the identity of the third male are asked to call Norway House RCMP at 204-359-6483 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
