Toronto Police have arrested a 20-year-old man in a series of weekend robberies, but two men are still outstanding.
Police allege that between Friday, November 4, and Sunday, November 6, three men committed four hold ups and one robbery.
In the hold ups, the men entered stores, armed with a knife, went behind the counter area and took money from the registers.
At a bank in the Church Street/Wellesley Street East area, one of the men waited for a customer to make a withdrawal, then demanded his money while armed with a knife.
After a struggle, the customer disarmed the man but suffered minor injuries.
Police responded and located a man in the area.
20-year-old Tristan Clarke, of no fixed address, is now charged with four counts of robbery with an offensive weapon, robbery, 20 counts of fail to comply with probation and possession of property obtained by crime – under ($5000).
