A black male in a dark red station wagon is believed responsible for two armed robberies in one hour Saturday night.

And he may be the same man who robbed the Ramada Inn on the North Parallel Road on Sunday at about about 11:20 p.m.

Chilliwack RCMP and Abbotsford Police are working together to identify the suspect.

Chilliwack RCMP were called to the Parkwood Motor Lodge on Young Street at about 10:05 p.m., Saturday and about 50 minutes later to the Popkum Esso on Yale Road East by reports of armed robberies.

The suspect is described as about 25-35 years old, 5’10” to six feet tall, with a short black beard and a medium build.

At the time of the robberies, he was wearing a dark-coloured zip-up hooded jacket that may have had ‘Vancouver 2010’ written on it. He was also wearing blue jeans and a light-coloured baseball cap.

He was seen leaving in a dark red station wagon that was last reported heading toward Hwy 1.

On Sunday, the Abbotsford Police were called to the Ramada Inn by a similar robbery.

Chilliwack and Agassiz serious crime units are actively investigating the robberies.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-222-TIPS. Tips can also be made online at www.chilliwackcrimestoppers.ca
