Parkland RCMP are searching for four suspects after two youth were robbed at knifepoint in Stony Plain.

Around 10:30 pm on May 28th, a 17-year-old male and a 16-year-old female were walking through Outdoor Wellness Park towards the Skate Park. When they entered the tunnel underneath the train tracks, they were approached by three males asking for money.
