The ‘Mummy Bandit’ hits two more banks in brazen, afternoon robberies
Watch: Security camera footage from one of the robberies
TORONTO – The bank robber dubbed by police as the “Mummy Bandit” has struck two more Toronto banks despite police releasing photos of the thief.
Police say the man, believed to be between the ages of 20 and 30, robbed a bank at Fork York Boulevard and Spadina Road during the afternoon of April 22. He entered the bank, went behind the counter and pulled out a handgun while demanding money.
He was given the money and he fled on foot.
He repeated the robbery on the afternoon of May 14 at a bank near College Street and Bathurst Street.
Police say he was armed with a handgun during both robberies.
The Mummy Bandit is described as being between five foot six inches and five foot ten inches tall. He can be seen wearing a large ring on his right hand in one of the security images released by police.
Police first alerted the public about the serial bank robber in April during a hunt for three other robbers, including “the Pleather Bandit.”
Police say the Mummy Bandit’s robberies date back to October 2013. In some of the robberies he has wrapped his face in cloth, which earned him his nickname.
Police are concerned about the bandit because he’s produced a weapon – either a knife or a gun – at all of his robberies.
