The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) is asking for the public’s help to identify the suspect in a bank robbery on Saturday, Jan. 30.

Police say a man entered the Bank of Montreal at 3122 Mt. Lehman Rd. at 1:35 p.m. that day, approached a bank teller, pulled out a gun and demanded cash.

The suspect is described as Caucasian, 45 to 50 years old, wearing a black coat, light blue jeans, brown shoes, a black toque, and a black mask covering his nose and mouth.
