Mounties are asking for public help in finding the person who robbed an elderly man in Whalley.

On April 26, at about 10:15 a.m., Surrey RCMP were called to a theft in the 10100-block King George Boulevard.

There they found an 87-year-old man who had just left a bank, when he was bumped into and robbed the envelop containing his withdrawal.

During the robbery, the man, who uses a walker to get around, stumbled backward and began yelling for help.

Witnesses who came to the victim’s aid, saw the suspect running northbound through the parking lot towards 101 Avenue.

The suspect is described as being a white male, in his mid 20’s, 5’6” to 5’8”, slim build, wearing light grey clothing similar to a track suit, with a “bowl” style haircut.

The elderly male was uninjured.

Anyone with further information on this incident or who may have witnessed anything suspicious in the area is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
