Spa robbed by armed bandit

A Langley spa was held up at knifepoint by a masked man last week.

On Jan. 25 at 4:30 p.m., a man in dark clothes with a bandana pulled over his face ran into the Lotus Day Spa in the 8800 block of 216th Street in Walnut Grove, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

The man had an edged weapon and demanded money from the till.

He took some cash and headed out the door. 

RCMP officers responding to the robbery spotted a car they thought was linked to the theft, and attempted to pull it over, but it sped off and police were not able to apprehend the driver. So far there has been no arrest.

Anyone with information on the robbery can call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200, or to leave an anonymous tip, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
