An armed robber bit off more than he could chew when he tried to hold up a Murrayville sushi restaurant back in May.
On May 20, the suspect walked into Koâ€™s Sushi in the 22000 block of 48th Avenue. It was just before the 9 p.m. closing time, said Cpl. Holly Marks, a spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.
The man threatened an employee with a large knife and demanded money. The worker called for the manager, who rushed out and chased the suspect out of the restaurant.
Marks said the manager was unarmed. He pursued the suspect west down 48th towards 219th Street but was unable to catch him.
The thief didnâ€™t get any money from his attempted robbery.
A restaurant employee has worked with a sketch artist to create a composite drawing of the suspect.
He is described as Caucasian, in his 20s, with a skinny build. He was wearing a dark toque, sunglasses, a dark-coloured hoodie, and grey shorts.
Police are asking anyone with information to call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200, or to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
