Police have arrested a man following three alleged bank robberies across Toronto in June and July.

In a press release, Toronto police said they responded to three incidents between June 24 and July 9 in the Fashion District, The Beaches and the Church and Wellesley area.

Police said that in each incident a man went into a bank with his identity disguised and approached a bank teller. He then handed the employee a note saying a robbery was taking place and demanded “a large amount of cash,” according to police.

Police said in two of the three incidents the man allegedly fled with cash.
