On Saturday, January 11, 2020, shortly before 4 p.m., police were called to a bank located in the area of Major Mackenzie Drive East and Woodbine Avenue for a report of a robbery. When officers arrived, they found employees in the bank who were not physically injured. Investigators have determined that a man armed with a handgun and a woman, both wearing masks, entered the bank and made a demand for cash. The employees complied and the suspects fled.
