Police are hoping the public will help them identify a robbery suspect who allegedly robbed a senior citizen at the TD Canada Trust outled at 6380 No. 3 Rd. late last month.

Richmond RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley said the 76-year-old male victim had just withdrawn money from the ATM banking machine on May 29, and had secured his cash in a shoulder bang, when a male approached him from behind as he was exiting.

The victim said the suspect grabbed his shoulder bag and pushed him to the ground before fleeing on foot.

But Richmond Mounties now have images of the suspect, who was captured in surveillance video that's now been released to the public.

The suspect is described as about five feet eight inches tall, between 20 and 30 years old, with short black hair and was wearing a black-and-red ball cap, a dark-coloured hoodie and shorts.

Anyone with information about the robbery or the suspect is asked to call Richmond RCMP Const. Perera at 604-278-1212.

Those who wish to remain anonymous can call 1-800-222-8477.
