Police release photo of man suspected of attacking and robbing Surrey cabbie

WHALLEY — Police are hoping the public can help identify a man who is a suspect in a violent attack and robbery of a taxi cab driver in Whalley last month.

On June 21 around 5:30 a.m. police were called by a taxi driver in the 13300-block of 105A Avenue who said he had picked up a man near 108th Avenue and 144th Street.

The man then allegedly assaulted the driver, stabbed him in the arm and hand, then took off with his wallet, money and cell phone.

The suspect is described as a slender, dark complexioned man who was wearing black pants and a black hoody with the hood up at the time.

The driver, a 50-year-old Surrey man, was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers to remain anonymous at 1-800-222-TIPS or visit Solvecrime.ca.
