Attempted robbery suspects sought

Police release images of pair suspected of trying to rob a man in Whalley last month.

Police are asking for public assistance in identifying a couple of suspected thieves in an attempted robbery last month in Whalley.

On March 25, at about 11 p.m., Surrey Mounties were called to an attempted robbery in a commercial parking lot in the 13900-block of Fraser Highway.

The victim was approached by a man who was holding a gun. The suspect was with a woman.

The suspect’s demand for money was not met and the couple fled.

A nearby closed circuit TV camera captured images of the two suspects, which police have released in hopes that someone will recognize the pair.

The first suspect is described as an aboriginal male, 30, wearing a black baseball cap with a red brim and a black hoodie with a white design on the front and back. He was also wearing black track pants with white stripes.

The woman is described as a 30-year-old aboriginal, with long brown hair, wearing a green baseball cap, grey sweater, dark pants, and black-and-white polka-dot boots.
