The Toronto police hold up unit is seeking the public’s help after a Saturday afternoon bank robbery in Rexdale.

According to a Monday news release, a man walked into a bank branch near the intersection of Rexdale Blvd. and Hwy. 27 around 4 p.m. The man allegedly waited in line before approaching the teller and verbally demanding money.

The man kept his hands in his sweatshirt and stated that he had a weapon, said the release.

The teller handed over a sum of money and the man fled the branch toward the parking lot.

Police also released security footage that clearly shows the suspect’s face.

The release describes the suspect as 25 to 30 years old, between five-foot-10 and six-foot, 180 pounds, with a goatee. He was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt with a black hood and a stripe down the sleeves, dark grey pants and black shoes with white soles.
