Police looking for one man in two mid-day bank robberies on Carling Avenue

A man walked away with an undisclosed amount of cash in two incidents last Friday, July 21.

The Ottawa Police Service is investigating two robberies involving the same suspect, and is hoping the public can help identify him. 

Officials said a man walked into a bank on Carling Avenue near the Westgate Shopping Centre last Friday, at 12:10 p.m., and handed a teller a note demanding money. 

He left with an undisclosed amount of cash. 

No injuries were reported in the incident. 

That same day, just a short time later, the same suspect visited a bank on Carling Avenue near Kirkwood Avenue.   

He again gave a teller a note demanding money and received an undisclosed amount of cash.  

No injuries were reported in that incident either.   

The suspect is described as white man, between 50 and 60-years-old. He was wearing a sun hat, gray t-shirt, jeans, and carrying a small bag during both robberies. 

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to call robbery unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 5116.  Anonymous tips can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), or by downloading the Ottawa Police app.
