Winnipeg man arrested during afternoon bank robbery attempt, police say

A Winnipeg man is facing a robbery charge after being arrested in an attempted bank robbery Monday afternoon, police say.

Officers responded to a hold-up alarm from a Portage Avenue bank branch in downtown Winnipeg just after 4 p.m., where they found the suspect — who had been unsuccessful in obtaining any cash in the incident — still inside.

According to police, the 37-year-old man handed a staff member a note demanding money, which led the employee to signal police with the alarm.

Police said no weapon was used by the suspect, who was later released on an undertaking.
