Bank robbers flee in Jeep

A bank robber waving a gun held up the HSBC Bank on South Fraser Way on Tuesday.

At 12:12 p.m. a man entered the bank on pulled out a handgun and walked directly to the counter pointing the gun at one of the tellers while ordering everyone to put their hands up and get on the ground. 

As the teller complied with his demand for money, the suspect paced around the bank waving the gun in the air. 

After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash the suspect fled in a black Jeep Cherokee driven by another man. 

The robber is described as a dark-skinned male, in his late 20s to early 30s, five feet six inches tall, 150 pounds with a skinny build, thin cheeks and dark stubble. 

He was wearing a dark toque, sunglasses, black puffy jacket, black gloves and black jeans.

The driver is described as a dark-skinned man, in his late 20s to early 30s wearing a dark jacket with a fur-lined hood.

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Mitchell at 604-859-5225.
