Police looking for fast food restaurant robber

Three incidents last week in Abbotsford believed to be connected

Abbotsford Police are looking for a man they believe robbed three fast food restaurants last week.

In all three incidents a man entered an outlet holding an object under clothing that could have been a weapon.

On Sept. 12, a man with his face partially covered entered a Subway on South Fraser Way, demanded money and took off with “a small amount of cash,” according to police.

Three days later, a very similar incident happened at a Little Caesar’s on Clearbrook Road but this time an employee at the pizza shop refused to give the suspect money, police say. He fled the scene northbound.

Later that same day, police say someone matching the description from the previous robberies demanded cash at a Subway on McCallum Road. He made off with a small sum, they say.

The Abbotsford Police Department’s major crime unit is investigating the series of robberies and believe they were all perpetrated by the same man.

He is described as Caucasian, aged 25 to 35 years old, 5’9” to 6’” with a medium build. He was wearing dark clothing with his face and weapon partially covered during each incident. He might have a mark, tattoo or mole under one of his eyes.

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