WINNIPEG - Police have arrested and charged a Winnipeg man they believe is responsible for seven robberies, all following a similar pattern, dating all the way back to 2009, including a brazen bank robbery Thursday night.
Police said they responded to a robbery at a financial institution in the 100 block of St Anne's Road around 8:00 PM. A man wearing a disguise to hide his face, and armed with a knife, confronted a woman teller and demanded money. She complied and he took off.
About two hours later police located the suspect at a home on Kettering Street, at which time he was taken into custody without issue.
