Now, Langley RCMP have released a police sketch of the man responsible for the Feb. 24 mugging.

A spokesperson for the detachment said a woman was walking home with her groceries along a path running parallel to the Fraser Highway just west of 265A Street around 2 p.m. when a man approached her and asked for a cigarette,

When she refused, he pulled a knife.

He then reached into her pocket, and took a sum of money and the groceries she was carrying before he fled.

The suspect is described as a thin 6’3” Caucasian, 30 to 40 years old with crooked yellow teeth and medium length brown hair.
