Vancouver police are asking for the public’s help to identify two suspects who robbed a senior.
According to police, they believe the two men were in the area of Commercial Drive and north Granview Highway around 4:00 p.m. on April 28, when a 77-year-old man was knocked to the ground and robbed.

“This appears to be a violent and targeted attack on a vulnerable member of our community,” says Constable Steve Addison, VPD.
“We would like these men to come forward, or for anyone who knows them to contact police, so we can talk about what happened”.
Investigators says the two suspects followed the victim into a payday loan store about three blocks north of the Commercial-Broadway SkyTrain station. It was here that they watched him obtain several hundred dollars cash.
The senior then proceeded to go into a grocery store. The suspects pretended to shop, and knocked him to the ground after he left. Unfortunately, they got away with the senior’s wallet, cash, and identification.
