Police released security camera images on March 29 of a man wanted in connection with a bank holdup in East York.

On March 12 at 3:40 p.m. a man wearing dark sunglasses entered a Canada Trust branch at Danforth and Woodbine avenues.

When he came up to a bank teller, he at first told the teller he wanted to open an account, according to Toronto police constable Victor Kwong.

“The man handed over a holdup note demanding money and threatening everyone in the branch, written on the back of an ATM envelope,” Kwong said.

The teller gave the man an undefined amount of money and the man fled.

The man is described as brown, in his early 20s, 5-foot-8, 150 pounds, and having short hair.
