Disguised man robs Leduc ATB with bear spray

Police say the man entered the bank with a disguise and took off in a dark coloured bicycle

Leduc RCMP are looking for a disguised man who robbed an ATB Financial bank.

The man used bear spray to threaten staff at the branch on 50 Avenue Dec. 6 at 2:25 p.m. He was wearing what appears to be a mask (pictures supplied) and demanded cash from employees.

“The suspect male fled the bank northbound on a dark coloured bike,” say police.

“The suspect was wearing a disguise but was described as being 5’7” tall, Caucasian, wearing a grey sweatshirt and black pants and shoes.”

Police add that the bear spray wasn’t used in the incident and no one was injured.

“Investigators would like to hear from anyone who observed the suspect male either before or after the incident,” say police.
