Trio of suspects sought in White Rock mugging

White Rock RCMP are investigating the armed robbery of a pedestrian.

White Rock RCMP are investigating the armed robbery of a pedestrian.

Police confirmed this week that the incident occurred at approximately 11:30 p.m. on Nov. 25, when a 57-year-old woman walking in the 15000-block of North Bluff Road was approached by three strangers, one of whom had a weapon.

The trio demanded that the woman hand over her personal items and a backpack she was carrying at the time, then fled on foot, police say.

One resident who contacted Peace Arch News last week to ask why the incident hadn’t been reported in the newspaper said she learned of the mugging from her son and she put up a notice in her building advising residents to be cautious.

On Tuesday, White Rock RCMP confirmed the report. They say the victim was not injured in the robbery.

And while the resident said she heard the weapon produced was a knife, police would not confirm the assertion.

The only description provided for the suspects is that two were male and one was a female.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 778-593-3600.
