Abbotsford gas station robbed at gunpoint

Two men held up a business on Huntingdon Road on Monday night

  • Dec. 23, 2015 5:00 a.m.

A gas station in the 32300 block of Huntingdon Road was robbed at gunpoint on Monday evening.

Two Caucasian men entered the business at 7:20 p.m. and both pointed handguns at the employee working behind the counter. They demanded cash, and the worker collapsed to the ground, triggering an alarm which scared off the culprits, who then fled westbound.

One suspect is described as 20 to 40 years old, heavy-set and wearing a North Face jacket and hoodie, dark pants and white gloves. He was carrying a black backpack with red or purple lining.

The other man is described as 20 to 40 years old, thin and with a goatee. He was wearing a black hoodie and dark pants and gloves.

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