Suspects sought in walk-in robbery

Elderly woman was home alone when intruders entered her Marine Drive residence

Police are seeking help in identifying two male intruders who walked into a South Surrey residence while an elderly woman was home.

The incident took place at 5:20 p.m. on Aug. 1, in the 13200-block of Marine Drive.

Surrey RCMP said in a news release Thursday the two men walked in an open door while the woman, the homeowner, was alone in the residence.

The woman was not injured, but the suspects escaped with some cash.

The men are described as Caucasian and in their 20s, both of slim build and average height and wearing dark clothing. One had blond hair and the other had dark stubble on his face.

A neighbour has described their vehicle as a silver or grey older model car (possibly a Toyota) with “with dull paint, a very ‘boxy’ rear end and a weak-sounding engine.”

Anyone with more information is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, Crime Stoppers, or, anonymously, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca
