Suspect in a gas station robbery in Abbotsford on Oct. 12.

The Abbotsford Police Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying a suspect in a robbery that occurred Sunday, Oct. 12.

On that day, a man entered a gas station in the 31700 block of South Fraser Way at 8 p.m.

Const. Paul Walker said the man then selected a chocolate bar and placed it on the counter for purchase.

The employee rang in the sale, and the man handed the clerk some money.

Once the cash register was open, the culprit lunged across the counter, grabbed money from the till, and ran away east on South Fraser Way.

The suspect is described as Caucasian, 20 to 30 years old, about six feet tall with a medium build and facial hair, including long sideburns.

He was wearing a dark-blue ball cap with a white logo, a black jacket, grey sweat pants and brown shoes.
