The Ottawa Police Service is seeking the pubic's help in identifying a suspect in connection with a bank robbery that took at the RBC branch in Navan on Sept. 3.

The suspect was caught on the branch's closed circuit camera and was wearing a dark blue or black long sleeved button down shirt with stripes, beige/khaki Docker type pants, a blue/white baseball cap (no logo), sunglasses with dark lenses, and dark blue and white running shoes.

He is an English-speaking, Caucasian male, approx. 25- to 30 years old, six feet tall with a medium build.

The suspect entered the branch at about 7 p.m. and verbally indicated it was a robbery. He was armed with a handgun, which he pointed at the bank personnel. He was carrying a plastic bag in which he ordered the teler to place the cash.

It is believed the suspect fled in a red hatchback with a black roof rack. That vehicle travelled south on Trim Road and was last seen turning eastbound onto Colonial Road. It is also believed the suspect was in the proximity several hours before he entered the bank.

Anyone with information in respect to the robbery, or the suspect is asked to contact the Ottawa Police Robbery Unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 5116. Anonymous tips can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or by downloading the Ottawa Police iOS app.
