The first robbery took place Monday at the 1825 Dundas Street East branch of the Bank of Nova Scotia at about 9:35 a.m. Displaying a silver handgun visible from his belt line the suspect jumped over the counter while making verbal demands for money. He fled the scene with cash.
At the time the suspect was wearing a beige shirt, blue jeans, a blue baseball cap and reading glasses. His right arm was seen to be bandaged up.
Yesterday at 10:30 a.m. the 660 Eglinton Avenue West branch of the Bank of Nova Scotia was robbed. The suspect jumped over the counter demanding cash indicating that he had a gun. The suspect fled the scene after obtaining cash.
The suspect was wearing a white sleeved shirt, with long black sleeves, blue jeans, a light-coloured baseball hat, white running shoes and a latex glove on his left hand. He was also seen carrying a black bag.
In both incidents the suspect was described as a white man, 5'8" to 5'10", thin and estimated to be in his 40's. Police believe that the same man is responsible for the two robberies.
It is thought that the suspect could be responsible for bank robberies in the York Region as well.
If seen, members of the public are urged not to approach the suspect as he should be considered armed and dangerous. Instead, members of the public are urged to contact their local police agency, or Peel Police Communications at (905) 453-3311.
