Abbotsford Police believe two simultaneous bank robberies are linked
Abbotsford Police believe that two simultaneous bank robberies on Saturday afternoon were committed by two men working together.
Both occurred at 2:10 p.m. at Coast Capital Savings and RBC in the 31900 block of South Fraser Way.
Lone men entered each business and produced notes demanding cash at the transaction counters.
They did not produce any weapons.
Both men were Caucasian. One was 6’ 2” tall, in his early- to mid-20s, unshaven, with a thin build and gapped teeth. He was wearing a red and black baseball cap, a grey T-shirt and blue jeans.
The other was about 6’ tall, in his late 20s, clean-shaven, with a slim build, large bulging eyes and red marks on his face. He wore a camouflage baseball cap, dark T-shirt and blue jeans.
Const. Ian MacDonald said police believe the two coordinated the robberies.
They do not consider the robberies to be linked to three recent thefts that occurred at local Subway restaurants.
Patrol division officers and members of the forensic identification unit are gathering evidence, including video.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
