Police are looking for two men who allegedly robbed two different victims of their vehicles in Surrey earlier this month.

The first carjacking happened on Sunday, Oct. 5, at around 5:20 p.m. PT at a gas station in the 13500 block of 88th Avenue.

Surrey RCMP say the pair got into a Honda Prelude and one of them assaulted the driver, who then fled. One of the suspects had a weapon, police said.

The two suspects then allegedly drove the car to the intersection of Fraser Highway and 96th Avenue, where they pulled in front of a Ford Expedition, forced that driver out, and took off in the SUV.

"Our investigation has revealed that the two males then drove the second stolen vehicle to Lougheed Mall in Burnaby where they were observed getting out of the Ford Expedition and into a taxi cab," said Cpl. Bert Paquet in a written statement.

"Video surveillance was seized from the taxi cab and stills were created for dissemination and identification of the suspects," he said.

One of the suspects is a white man in his late-30s, approximately six feet tall, with a medium build, short blond hair and blue eyes. The other suspect is a white man in his mid-30s, approximately five-feet-10-inches, with a slim build, brown hair and blue eyes.

Police are asking anyone with information to call the Surrey RCMP robbery section at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca.
