Police seek violent attacker, armed robber, and petty thieves

A man who rushed into a woman’s apartment and attacked her may have been high at the time, Langley RCMP say.

On July 13, someone knocked on an apartment door in Langley City.

When the door was opened, the man knocking rushed inside, ran into the living room, and tried to punch the 62-year-old woman sitting there.

The first punch was blocked, but the attacker then managed to hit her in the chest, knocking her to the ground.

Police are not completely certain about the reason for the attack.

“He may have been affected by the use of drugs,” said Marks.

A warrant has now been issued for the arrest of Bright Moon, a 22-year-old Langley man. He is 5’5”, 130 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

In another violent incident police are trying to solve, a man threatened Best Buy workers with a knife as she stole an XBox and a PS4 video game systems.

The man robbed the store on Nov. 30 and was seen fleeing in a burgundy Dodge Caravan. The suspect is described as Indo-Canadian, middle-aged, balding, and wearing a grey hoodie. He was seen with a Caucasian man about 25 years old, wearing a black hat and black jacket.

Police have also released surveillance photos related to two other crimes.

On Dec. 17, a woman entered the Bench store in Willowbrook Shopping Centre, headed into the stock room, and pilfered cash and cellphones from the purses of employees.

On Jan. 1, a man and a woman allegedly walked into Future Shop, chose a camera, and snapped its security cable before rapidly leaving. The stolen Canon EOS 6D retails for about $2,300.

Anyone with information on any of the investigations can call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200, or to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
