VPD investigates after East Van diners robbed at gun-point

Vancouver – Vancouver Police are investigating a take-over style robbery that left more than a dozen staff and customers traumatized at an East Vancouver café Sunday morning.

Two men with guns entered the restaurant Café Du Soleil, near Commercial Drive and Kitchener Street, at the height of Sunday brunch. They pointed the weapons at staff and patrons, ordering the victims to hand over cellular phones and other valuables, then fled in a vehicle.

One victim sustained minor injuries.

Both suspects wore hats, hoodies, and gloves to hide their identities.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Vancouver Police Department’s Major Crime Section at 604-717-2541.
