A 28-year-old man from Sturgeon Lake First Nation is facing a total of eight charges in connection to a violent robbery at a Prince Albert area business last week.
 
On Jan. 27, Julian Leo Felix, 28, allegedly entered the business north of the city, and told the cashier to open the cash register. Police said he then jumped over the counter, and assaulted the cashier. The cashier at the store was taken to hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.

An undisclosed amount of cash was taken, and police said Felix fled the store. The suspect left in a black SUV which was stolen from the Blaine Lake area. RCMP later found the vehicle, but the driver sped-off when prompted to pull-over. Police said Felix eventually lost contol of the vehicle and hit the ditch. He allegedly attempted to flee on foot, but was arrested by police.
 
Felix is scheduled to appear at Prince Albert Provincial Court on Tuesday. His charges include aggravated assault, robbery, theft under $5,000 and resisting arrest.
