Police are asking for public assistance in identifying a couple of suspected thieves in an attempted robbery last month in Whalley.

On March 25, at about 11 p.m., Surrey Mounties were called to an attempted robbery in a commercial parking lot in the 13900-block of Fraser Highway.

The victim was approached by a man who was holding a gun. The suspect was with a woman.

The woman is described as a 30-year-old aboriginal, with long brown hair, wearing a green baseball cap, grey sweater, dark pants, and black-and-white polka-dot boots.

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or Please quote file #2016-40914.
