This person robbed the 7-Eleven at Tillicum and Carey roads on Monday

Tillicum 7-Eleven robbed again

Saanich police say the same man could be responsible for two robberies of a 7-Eleven store three weeks apart.

Saanich police say the same man could be responsible for two robberies of a 7-Eleven store three weeks apart.

Around 12:25 a.m. Monday a man entered the Carey and Tillicum roads location brandishing a knife and demanded cash. He fled on foot after being given some money.

The suspect is described as a dark- or tanned-skin Caucasian man, approximately five-foot-six to six-feet-tall with an average build.

He was wearing a white hooded sweatshirt, a dark camouflage jacket, dark pants and white running shoes.

The physical description of this suspect is similar to one described to police on June 25 after another early-morning robbery of the same 7-Eleven, where a masked man threatened the clerk with a screwdriver.

“It is not known if the two incidents are related,” said Sgt. Steve Eassie. “There is no direct evidence that suggests that the incidents were committed by the same individuals.”

Police are asking anyone with information on either incident to call 250-475-4321.
