Burnaby RCMP are asking for the public's help in identifying a robbery suspect.

The suspect entered a bank at 4307 Kingsway on Feb. 28 at about 12:30 p.m. After waiting in line for a teller, he passed a note to her but said nothing. The note demanded money and indicated he was armed, although no weapon was ever produced. The teller gave the suspect $300 before he fled.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian man, five-foot-two to five-foot-four, 20 to 30 years old, with pale, sickly skin, and a thin build. He had short brown hair, brown eyes and a thin, brown moustache. At the time of the robbery he was wearing a navy blue sweater, baggy blue jeans, a white ball cap worn backwards with a black DC logo on the front, white and dark-coloured shoes. He is also described as "offensive smelling."

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact Const. Leo Fedele of the Burnaby RCMP Robbery Section at 604-209-8078.
