Abbotsford Police seek customer who witnessed Subway restaurant robbery

Abbotsford Police are asking that a witness come forward who was a customer during the latest Subway restaurant robbery on Tuesday, Oct. 18.

Const. Ian MacDonald said the woman was being served by an employee at the Subway in the 1900 block of McCallum Road at about 9:30 p.m. when a man with a gun burst in, demanded cash and then fled in an unknown vehicle.

The customer was gone by the time police arrived, and investigators would like to speak to her. She is described as Caucasian, 20 to 30 years old, 5' 8" to 5' 10", with blonde hair in a ponytail, and wearing glasses, a pink scarf and a dark-coloured jacket.

The robber is described as 5' 6" to 5' 10" tall, with an average build and wearing a dark hat with a red brim, a black puffy sweater or jacket, black gloves, black footwear and carrying a dark-coloured backpack. His face was fully covered.

This is the fourth robbery of a Subway restaurant since Sept. 4 by a man carrying a gun and fitting a similar description, although MacDonald said police cannot rule out that different people could be involved.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
