Subway shop robbed twice in 24 hours

A Subway outlet on Yale Road was robbed twice in less than 24 hours, Chilliwack RCMP reported Thursday.

A Subway outlet on Yale Road was robbed twice in less than 24 hours, Chilliwack RCMP reported Thursday.

And police investigators are looking into the possibility the same lone male is responsible for both.

The first holdup happened at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday when a lone male, believed to be a First Nations man because of his speech and complexion, entered the restaurant at 46298 Yale Road and demanded money.

The next day, just after 10:30 a.m., another lone male, also described as a First Nations man, entered the same Subway shop and demanded money.

“At this time the police are trying to determine if the suspect involved in both robberies is the same person,” RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said.

In the first robbery, the suspect was described as about 5’7″ tall, wearing a black balaclava, a long-sleeved sweater with white stripes along the arms, and dark-coloured pants.

In the second robbery, the suspect was also described as about 5’7″ tall, about 26 years old, who covered his face with his hand during the robbery. He was wearing dark pants, a black and white scarf and a dark-coloured, hooded jacket.

In both cases, the suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
