Knife-wielding mugger steals Langley man’s phone

 

An armed mugger swiped a Langley man’s smartphone near the City’s downtown area in the early hours of Thursday, March 20.

Just before 2 a.m., the victim and a friend were walking north in the 5500 block of 203rd Street when a man approached, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

The man asked to see the victim’s phone, then tried to grab it, said Marks.

When the victim resisted, the suspect pulled a knife. The victim released the phone, and the thief ran south on 203rd Street.

The mugger is described as heavy set with dark hair, between 5’8” and 6’0” tall, wearing fancy jeans and a brown plaid jacket. He may have had a goatee.

The stolen phone is a Samsung Galaxy S3 in a grey Otter Box case.

Anyone with information that can help the police investigation can call the RCMP at 604-532-3200. To remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
