Toronto hunts for bank robber nicknamed the Lunchtime Bandit

While this Toronto bank robber might not have the most ominous-sounding name, Toronto Police are currently searching for a clean-cut looking man nicknamed the Lunchtime Bandit.

The man is said to be in his 20s, between 5'10" and 6'. He's wanted in connection with five bank robberies that occured along Yonge Street between November 21 and December 17.

They allege that the man entered the banks and waited in line like a regular customer. When he approached a teller, he handed them a note, which demanded a specific amount of money and warned he was armed with a gun.

As CP24 writes, police described the man as "preppy" and said that the notes were "well-written."

All of the robberies happened along Yonge Street, between Davisville and Lawrence Street West, at around noon to 1 p.m.
