ABBOTSFORD Police are looking for two young South Asian males who allegedly robbed two women in Mill Lake Park on Monday night.
Constable Ian MacDonald said that two women went for a walk around Mill Lake Park at 7:45 p.m. on Monday. One woman was in her 80’s and she used a walker / wheelchair for assistance. She and her companion, who is in her 40s, continued around the park for over an hour. At 8:50 p.m., the women were near the Bevan Avenue parking lot preparing to leave when they were suddenly approached by two young males wearing hoodies and bandanas covering the lower portions of their faces.
