Surrey RCMP is investigating a robbery that occurred at a convenience store near Bear Creek Park in Surrey.
On October 14th at 8:15pm a man robbed the convenience store on the corner of 88th Avenue and 140th Street in Surrey. One person was punched and another thrown to the ground by the suspect before making off with cash. Thankfully, both victims did not sustain any serious injuries.
The Surrey RCMP Robbery Unit is leading this investigation. Police have obtained surveillance video stills depicting the alleged suspect. The man is described as a Caucasian male, 20-30 years old, with a slim build, dark short hair, and wearing dark clothing (see attached photos).
Targeting prolific offenders has helped reduce robberies by 24% year-to-date compared to 2016, says Corporal Scotty Schumann.
If you recognize this person, please call investigators and help police continue this downward crime trend.
