Update: Two men identified in robbery of a senior

Coleton Reid Szalay

Vancouver Police have identified two Richmond men in the robbery of a senior last month on Commercial Drive.

Duncan McCaffery Fowler, 25, and Coleton Reid Szalay, 23, have each been charged with robbery following a VPD investigation. Fowler was arrested in Richmond on May 23rd and has since been released pending his next court appearance. Police are still looking for Szalay, who is now wanted Canada-wide.

The men were identified after VPD released video and images of two suspects in the robbery of a 77-year-old Vancouver man, who was followed from a payday loan store near Commercial Drive and North Grandview Highway on April 28.

Anyone with information about Szalay’s whereabouts is asked to call 9-1-1 immediately. Anonymous tips can be made to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
