Surrey RCMP: Can you identify this suspect who robbed a restaurant?

SURREY RCMP are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect who allegedly robbed a restaurant chain this past November in the Newton area of Surrey.

On November 13, 2017, at approximately 8 p.m., the Surrey RCMP received a report of a robbery at a sandwich restaurant in the 13200-block of 72nd Avenue. The lone male suspect allegedly entered the restaurant and selected a drink from the fridge. The suspect then approached the cashier and pulled out a large knife and demanded money. The suspect left the restaurant in an unknown direction.

Surrey RCMP’s Robbery Unit is leading this investigation. A number of investigative steps have been completed, however, the male has not been positively identified.

The suspect is described as a dark-skinned male, approximately 25 years old, heavy-set, and between 5’6”-5’8” tall. He had a trimmed beard and was wearing a blue hoodie and black jacket.

“Robberies involving businesses can be stressful situations for employees, however, many businesses thankfully have best practices in place which includes the use of video surveillance,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann. “If you recognize this alleged suspect or have more information about this incident please contact Surrey RCMP or Crime Stoppers.”

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
