TORONTO – Police in Toronto are asking the public to help them find two men who robbed a bank this weekend, shooting a customer and teller in the process.
The two men can be seen on security video that police are releasing today — one of them brandishing a handgun and the other leaping over the counter.
As the second man leaps back over the counter at the TD bank in Toronto’s west end, he is tackled by a customer and the first man shoots at the customer, but hits a 22-year-old teller in her thigh.
Police say the 54-year-old customer then chased the suspects into the parking lot, where he was shot in the abdomen.
Police say the suspects made off with an undisclosed amount of cash, although it’s believed a bank security ink device may have stained most of the money.
The Canadian Bankers Association is offering a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects.
The actual amount paid will be determined by the police, depending on the information they receive.
The suspects are described as black men aged 20 to 25 with medium builds, wearing faded jeans, baseball caps and hooded sweatshirts — one with a number eight over the left breast, the other wearing a winter vest over top.
