Conducted energy weapon recovered after robbery suspects arrested

TWO males entered a store in Sevenoaks Shopping Center on Wednesday and attempted to steal a pair of sunglasses worth $700. When confronted by staff, the males fled on foot.

While exiting the mall, one of the suspects attempted to use a conducted energy weapon on a mall security guard.

Two males matching the suspects’ descriptions were located a short time later and arrested.

Two young Abbotsford men, 18 years old and 17 years old, remain in custody facing numerous charges including robbery, possession of a prohibited weapon, and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, and failing to comply with court orders.
