Police say they’re still looking for a suspect after a violent bank robbery in Toronto earlier this week where an employee was stabbed multiple times.

Toronto police said they were called just before 1 p.m. Monday for a hold-up in the area of Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue.

A man entered the bank wearing a mask and hoodie, pulled out a large knife and demanded cash, police said.

He then jumped over the counter and approached a bank employee.

The man fled through an emergency exit at the back of the bank, officers added.

He was described as 20 to 30 years old with a slim build and was wearing a white mask, a yellow toque, a red hoodie, a black jacket, torn blue jeans and red running shoes.

He was also reportedly carrying a black backpack.

“He is considered armed, violent, and dangerous. If located, do not approach. Call 9-1-1 immediately,” police said.

Anyone with information on the suspect’s identity is being asked to contact investigators at 416-808-7350 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-8477.
