Police are asking for the public’s help identifying a bank robber.
On May 17 at 1 p.m., officers responded to the Bank of Montreal at 5151 George Street where it was reported that a man entered the bank and demanded money from staff. The suspect received an undisclosed amount of cash. He is described as a white male, 5'8”, 170 lbs., with dirty blonde receding hair, a thin face and slim build, and wearing jeans, a black hoodie, white ball cap, white sneakers and aviator sunglasses. He fled the bank on foot in an undetermined direction. While he indicated he had a weapon, none was seen. No one was injured during the incident.
Investigators in the HRP/RCMP Integrated General Investigation Section are releasing the attached photos with the hope that someone can identify the suspect.
