Drawing of a suspect in the Nov. 26

Police release drawing of suspect in Surrey postal worker robbery

Man broke wrist in tussle with alleged robber on Nov. 26

A composite drawing of a suspect in the robbery of a Surrey postal worker late last month has been released by Surrey RCMP.

A Canada Post employee was threatened with bear spray before being pulled from his truck and suffered a broken wrist when his vehicle and mail were taken on Nov. 26 near 148 Street and 55 Avenue.

The suspect is described as a “scruffy looking” Caucasian male in his mid-20s with a medium build, wearing a black hoodie and jeans.

Police are also looking for two suspects involved in a second, separate incident the next day (Nov. 27) near 139 Street and Antrim Road. The suspects, one of them described as a Caucasian male in his 20s with short red hair and marks on his face, took a female postal worker’s mail keys. The suspects in that incident fled in an older model grey vehicle.

Surrey RCMP are still investigating both robberies to determine if they’re connected. Anyone with information is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or if they wish to remain anonymous Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Police are also warning residents to safeguard their mail during the Christmas season. Check mail regularly, use postal money orders for gifts (never send cash), and report suspicious persons or activities around mail boxes.
