Police investigated reports of a strong-arm robbery at the Westfield Vancouver mall at midday Wednesday.

Reports came in around 12:20 p.m. that two males approached an individual, asked for money, physically assaulted the person and took the victim’s credit cards, police spokeswoman Kim Kapp said.

The two men were said to be black males, in their early 20s, Kapp said. One was about 6-feet, 2-inches tall, with a light build and wearing baggy black jeans and a red sweatshirt. The other is about 6-feet, 1-inch tall, bald and wearing black jeans and a black coat, Kapp said.

The victim didn’t need medical assistance, Kapp said.

Patrol units searched the area for suspects. As of Wednesday night, police had reported no arrest.
