Police looking for suspect in bank robbery

The Russell OPP say a man is wanted for allegedly robbing a bank in Hammond. They say a man with a weapon entered the Caisse Populaire Trillium in Hammond on January 25 at about 5:35 p.m., approached a cashier and demanded money.

The staff at the bank cooperated, police say, giving him money. The suspect ran away with his face hidden. The police describe him as a white man, between 5’6″ and 5’9″ and 150-160 lbs.

They say he was wearing prescription glasses, dark coloured clothing, and a black backpack and appeared to be about 24 or 25 years old.
