Surrey RCMP are hunting for a man suspected of robbing a pair of businesses, then escaping via an unusual getaway vehicle: roller blades.
Police say the first incident happened at a bakery on Fraser Highway at 88th on Saturday the 20th of August.
The suspect allegedly threatened staff with a knife before fleeing with cash.
The second incident happened the following day at a gas station just blocks away, at Fraser Highway near 158th ave.
In that case the suspect threatened a female employee with a knife, before robbing the business and skating away.
Police describe the suspect as a Caucasian male, 25-30 years old, approximately 5’8 tall, with a medium build.
In the bakery robbery he was wearing was wearing a white t-shirt with green on it, grey shorts, sunglasses, and rollerblades, while at the gas station he was dressed in a black hoodie with white markings, blue jeans, beige ball cap, sunglasses, and rollerblades.
Police believe it to be the same man in both cases.
Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous
