Suspects sought in violent Surrey robbery

Images now released of pair believed to be involved in daylight theft.

Police are seeking this man in relation to a robbery in Cloverdale last month.

Police have released photos of two suspects involved in a violent robbery last month in Cloverdale.

On Dec. 6, at about 12:50 p.m., two men entered a local pharmacy in the 5600 block of 177B Street, confronted two employees and demanded “Oxycontins,” (a time-released opiate pain killer).

As the robbery continued, both employees were viciously assaulted and threatened with a knife before being forced to open the safe. One staff member was also locked outside the store during the course of the robbery.

After grabbing the contents of the safe, the two suspects then fled out the front door and across a neighbouring school yard where they got into a waiting vehicle.

Police are asking for public assistance in identifying the individuals.

They are described as follows:

Caucasian males, in their 20s, 5’8″ to 5’10”, wearing dark hooded sweat tops with hoods up, dark gloves, jeans, running shoes.

Suspect one (entered the store first): Medium build, bushy eyebrows, square jawline and high hairline.

Suspect two: Slimmer build, taller than the first suspect, and had two light gray/white horizontal stripes on each arm of his sweatshirt.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP Robbery Section at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS if you wish to remain anonymous.
