RCMP investigating robbery at Semiahmoo Shopping Centre

Officers were called to the mall at 11 a.m. Friday morning

Surrey RCMP are on scene at Semiahmoo Shopping Centre in South Surrey, investigating a possible robbery attempt.

At about 11 a.m. Friday morning (Dec. 21), RCMP were called to the mall with reports of a robbery in a jewelry store.

“Thankfully, there were no injuries, but the employees are understandably shaken by the occurrence,” said Surrey RCMP Sgt. Chad Grieg.

Surrey RCMP describe the robbery suspect as a man with a thin build, 20 to 30 years old. His face was covered with a black and white bandana and he was wearing a black hat and black clothing.

The suspect is believed to have fled in a black Toyota 4-Runner SUV.

The investigation is ongoing.
