Bank robbed in Walnut Grove

A violent armed bank robbery on Friday, Dec. 20 has left Langley RCMP searching for a culprit.

Around 8 a.m., a man smashed the front glass of the Royal Bank at 204 Street and 88 Avenue, producing a gun in front of the employees who had just started their work day.

He then punched an employee and stole an undisclosed amount of cash. He fled on foot. The victim who was punched wasn’t seriously injured, said police.

“The tracks he made in the snow suggest he fled in a vehicle,” said Cpl. Holly Marks.

Police shut down 88 Avenue immediately after the robbery and searched for the robber for a couple of hours. So far no one has been apprehended.

Police describe the suspect as a Caucasian man, 5’ 9” tall, wearing a puffy black jacket.

If you have any information about this suspect or the robbery, call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
