The same Subway restaurant in Abbotsford was hit twice within 48 hours last week by a gun-toting robber.

The first incident took place Tuesday, July 28 at about 9:45 p.m. at the Subway restaurant at 1975 McCallum Rd.

A man carrying a large duffel bag and a handgun (in photo below) entered the restaurant, demanded cash from one of the three employees and left through a back door.

The suspect was described as tanned, approximately 5′ 8″, and wearing a face covering or balaclava and a black hoodie with a large Adidas logo and white stripes.

He was also wearing a distinctive bracelet on his left wrist.

The same location was hit again on Thursday, July 30 at 10:05 p.m.

The suspect in this case was also carrying a handgun, but had a backpack instead of a duffel bag. He, too, demanded cash from one of the staff.

He was wearing a black ski mask, a black leather jacket and black pants.

The robberies are being investigated by the major crime unit of the Abbotsford Police Department (APD).

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