Police looking for suspect in robbery of elderly woman

SURREY — Police need help to identify a robber who broke into an elderly woman’s home in Whalley on March 27 and stole some of her belongings.

The Surrey RCMP received a call from the victim, who is in her 80s, at about 8:30 a.m. that morning that a robber came into her home in the 9300-block of 133A Street. She tried to call 911 but the robber locked her doors, snatched away her phone, took some of her stuff and left. She was not physically injured.

The robbery suspect is described as South Asian or Filipino, in his mid-30s, five feet 10 inches tall and muscular with “squinty” eyes, a round head and short, square chin. He wore a large black baseball cap with a brim covering his ears, hair and head. Police have released a composite sketch.

Surrey RCMP’s Robbery Unit is investigating.

“Remember to keep your ground floor windows and doors locked, even when you are home, to reduce your risk of a break-and-enter,” Cpl. Scotty Schumann said.
