Vancouver police say they’ve made “significant progress” in their investigation of an armed robbery at a popular Commercial Drive brunch spot last week.
Patrons and staff at Cafe Du Soleil were robbed on Sunday around 11 a.m. by two hooded, gun-wielding suspects who remain at large. One staff member sustained minor injuries.
After stealing cellphones and other valuables that police have not yet identified, investigators believe the suspects fled south in a vehicle on Commercial Drive and east on East 1st Avenue toward Burnaby.
“We believe there are people who may unknowingly have dash-cam video of the suspects fleeing the area,” said Sgt. Steve Addison in a Wednesday news release.
