Chilliwack RCMP are looking for a masked gunman suspected off robbing the Rosedale Grocery and Video Store on Yale Road.

Police say an employee was working at the grocery store Friday morning, when a man wearing a black ski mask entered, brandished a handgun and demanded money.

He fled with lottery tickets and a quantity of cash, according to police.

Mounties responded to the call at about 7:20 a.m. with the assistance of a Lower Mainland Police Dog Service officer but couldn't find the suspect.

The man is described as aboriginal, slim, about six-feet tall and wearing a black jacket, cammo pants and white shoes.

Police say he was also carrying a black bag.

Anyone with information about this crime or suspect is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
