53-year-old man faces 12 charges

Arrested after four robberies across Toronto

53-year-old Jeffery Donald Marsh is set to appear in court today after being arrested on Jan. 26 for four robberies.

On Dec. 23, a man walked into a bank in the area of Bloor Street West and Runnymede Road demanding money while threatening the teller with a knife, police say.

The man fled the bank before receiving any money from the teller.

The same man entered a Beer Store on Jan. 2 at Sheppard Avenue East and Willowdale Avenue, pointing a knife at an employee and demanded all the money from the cash register, according to police.

The employee was able to escape and the suspect once again left the store empty-handed.

Police say on Jan. 5 the suspect, armed once again with a knife, demanded money from an employee at a 7-11 near Eglinton Avenue and Yonge Street. The employee handed over cash and the suspect quickly fled the store.

The next day, the man carried out a robbery at a bank in the Bloor Street West and Keele Street neighbourhood.

Marsh faces five counts of robbery with an offensive weapon, four counts of disguise with intent, and three counts of possession of a weapon.
