On September 10, 2016, at approximately 5:00am, Surrey RCMP received a report of a robbery at a convenience store in the 15100 block of 96th Avenue. Two male suspects entered the store and physically restrained the clerk before robbing the business and then fleeing in a vehicle westbound on 96th Avenue.

The same suspect vehicle is believed to be involved in two motor vehicle collisions with police vehicles during its attempt to flee the area soon after the robbery. The vehicle, which was confirmed stolen, was eventually abandoned in a neighouring jurisdiction. While some stolen items were recovered, both suspects remain outstanding.

Surveillance photos of the suspects are now available and the Surrey RCMP’s Robbery Unit is requesting the public’s help in identifying the suspects involved.

Suspect #1 is described as a dark-skinned male, in his mid 20’s, wearing a black baseball hat, black hoodie with red North Face lettering across the front, and grey track pants (see photo attached).

Suspect #2 is described as a heavy set Caucasian male, with short spiky hair, facial hair, and wearing a white t-shirt, chain necklace, and black pants. A photo of suspect #2 was obtained shortly after the robbery (see photo attached). During the robbery, suspect #2 was wearing a black Tapout jacket, a white belt, wig, black mask, and pink trucker’s hat (see photo attached).

Robberies like this are obviously frightening for the employees as well as damaging to the business, says Surrey RCMP Corporal Scotty Schumann. These suspects were also involved in multiple crimes in the community so we are hopeful someone will recognize them and call us with more information.

Public assistance requested in break and enter

Surrey: Surrey RCMP is requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect in  a break and enter to a residence in the City Centre area.

On March 27th, at 8:30am Surrey RCMP received a call from a female victim in her 80’s that an unknown male had entered her home in the 9300 block of 133A Street.  When she tried to call 911 the male locked the doors and took away her phone.  The male then searched her home, stole several items of value, and left.  The victim was not physically injured.

Surrey RCMP’s Robbery Unit is leading this investigation.  A neighborhood canvass was conducted to identify potential witnesses from the area.  Members from the Integrated Forensics Investigation Service (IFIS) were called to the scene to gather further evidence for forensic analysis.  In addition, an RCMP sketch artist was engaged and was able to produce a likeness of the suspect .

The suspect is described as a South Asian or Filipino male in his mid 30’s, 5’10” tall, with a muscular build .  The suspect was wearing an overly large black baseball cap with a brim that covered his ears, hair, and head. The suspect has “squinty” eyes and a very round head  with a short square chin.

“We’re hopeful that this composite sketch will lead to the eventual identification of the suspect,” says Cpl. Scotty Schumann. “Remember to keep your ground floor windows and doors locked, even when you are home, to reduce your risk of a break and enter.”
