Knife-wielding robber escapes on Evans Road

A brazen afternoon robbery left an Evans Road flower vendor shaken up, as a thief took his cash at knifepoint.

A roadside flower vendor was robbed at knifepoint Wednesday afternoon on the 6700 block of Evans Road.

At 1:30 p.m. a southbound truck pulled over, and a man got out.

He showed the knife and demanded money. The victim handed over the cash, and the robber escaped.

The suspect is described as Caucasion, between 18 and 20 years old, clean-shaven with short black hair. He’s approximately five-foot-nine with a medium build, and was wearing a purple jacket.

He took off in a small light grey or brown pickup truck.

“This is a commonly traveled roadway in Chilliwack,” said RCMP Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen. “We are canvassing for witnesses, hoping someone observed this vehicle and the suspect in the area.”

The Chilliwack RCMP General Investigations Section is asking for help. Anyone who feels they may have a tip is asked to call the RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
