Surrey RCMP is asking for the public’s help in identifying a robbery suspect.
On Feb. 8 at 9:14 a.m., according to a release from Surrey RCMP Const. Gurvinder Ghag, police received a report of a robbery at a Petro Canada gas station in the 14400-block of 104 Avenue.
Ghag said the suspect “allegedly flashed what appeared to be a handgun at the cashier and demanded money.”
The suspect, Ghag said, fled the scene “with a small amount of cash” before police were notified of the incident.
Police said the suspect is described as Caucasian, wearing a white-and-black tie-dyed hoodie with the hood up and a baseball cap underneath. The suspect also had on a grey jacket with “neon green or yellow stripes down the side, jeans or dark pants,” black-and-red gloves and black-and-white shoes.
The suspect had their face covered with a red-and-white bandana and was carrying a black backpack.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or solvecrime.ca.
