Serial Robber Strikes Again, Police Ask Public For Help

Vancouver Police are warning business owners and the general public after a series of robberies in southeast Vancouver involving a firearm.

Between January 13th and 30th, the following three business robberies have now been linked to the same suspect:

January 13th – 7300 Knight Street
January 21st – 6600 Fraser Street
January 30th – 1300 E.57th Avenue

The robberies all occurred between 5:00 and 7:00 p.m. In each incident, a man entered the business, pointed a handgun at the clerk, demanded money and then left on foot.

Investigators are looking for a man with a slim build, 5’8” to 5’10” tall, who was wearing a black windbreaker Umbro soccer jacket with the logo on the back and black pants. He wore a black ski mask during the robberies.

Vancouver Police are asking people to be vigilant and to report any suspicious people to 9-1-1.
