Hypodermic needle used during attempted ribbery
Chilliwack RCMP is looking for a man who tried to rob the Yale Road West Banners Restaurant with a hypodermic needle Sunday.
Mounties responded to the call at about 4:45 p.m. They say an employee had been working at the restaurant when an unknown male entered, confronted her and demanded money.
The suspect had brandished a needle in the robbery attempt, according one employee who spoke to the Times Wednesday.
But police say the suspect fled the area on foot when told the RCMP were being called.
The robbery attempt was unsuccessful, but police are continuing their investigation. The suspect is described as a slim, five-foot-six male in his 20s. He was wearing baggy blue jeans and a silver-coloured winter jacket with a fur-lined hood.
. Anyone with information about this incident or suspect is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
