Abbotsford Police release Subway robbery video

The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) has released video footage of a robbery that took place at a Subway restaurant on Nov. 10.

Police previously released a photo of the incident obtained from security video, but Const. Ian MacDonald said this did not result in enough tips to lead to a suspect.

He said video was obtained both from the Subway restaurant and from neighbouring businesses.

The robbery occurred at about 10:20 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 10 in the 2000 block of Whatcom Road.

The suspect approached an employee at the cash register, implied that he had a weapon, demanded cash and then fled.

Two employees were working at the time. Neither was harmed, but both were shaken by the incident, MacDonald said.

The culprit is described as Caucasian, 20 to 30 years old and approximately 5' 11".

He was wearing a thick grey plaid jacket with black stripes and a hood, a grey undershirt, black baggy sweat pants, runners with white soles, and a purple baseball cap with a Minnesota Vikings logo.

Anyone with information is asked to call the APD at 604-859-5225, text 222973 (abbypd) or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
