Surrey RCMP say tips from the public have led to the identification of a suspect in a pair of bank robberies in Surrey over the past month.

Dwayne Allen Daniels, who was already wanted on a Canada-wide warrant out of Saskatchewan for sexual assault and other sex offences against minors, now faces two counts of robbery.

Sgt. Drew Grainger said Mounties secured approval for the charges in part through the help of the public, who positively identified Daniels after seeing his photo from surveillance video in the Leader.

Daniels is described as a 45-year-old Caucasian male, six feet tall and weighing 161 pounds, with brown hair, blue eyes and multiple tattoos.

Anyone who knows the suspect's whereabouts is urged to not approach him and contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or your local police department.

If you wish to remain anonymous contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or text BCTIP and your message to CRIMES (274637).

The robberies happened July 4 near 74 Avenue and Scott Road and June 25 in the Guildford area.
