The robbery occurred at the TD branch in the 46000 block of Yale Road at around 10:15 a.m.

According to police, a 30 to 40-year-old man demanded money from an employee before escaping with the stolen cash.

Police – including an RCMP dog unit – were quickly on scene, but were unable to locate the suspect.

However, they were able to secure a photograph of the man from the bank’s security camera.

“During the viewing of surveillance systems we discovered an image of the person suspected to have committed the alleged robbery, “said Const. Jade Stewart of Chilliwack RCMP.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, 30 to 40 years old, with a slim build and wearing a hoodie with a red ball cap.

“Police are asking for the public’s assistance to identify the male’s image captured by the security camera,” said Corporal Mike Rail, spokesperson for the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment.
