There’s been another brazen daytime robbery involving an elderly victim, this time in Richmond.
It happened Tuesday at around 5:00 PM in the 8000-block of Williams Road, when a man entered an 80-year-old woman’s home through an unlocked garage door.
That’s when he threatened her with a handgun, demanding her purse and car keys.
He then took off in her car, but thankfully she wasn’t hurt.
Richmond RCMP call it a despicable act, and are doubling down on their effort to track the person responsible.
The suspect is described as:
- Indo-Canadian or darker skinned male
- In his late 20s or early 30s
- Around 6’ (183 cm) in height
- Slim build
- Short dark hair with a receding hair line
Earlier this month, an elderly woman in Abbotsford was knocked to the ground and had her purse stolen outside a bank as she was getting into her car.
