Windsor Police have arrested a suspect after a knifepoint robbery that took place yesterday evening at a Walkerville bank.
On Wednesday September 26th just before 4pm, Windsor Police flooded the area of the CIBC bank in the 400 block of Devonshire after receiving a call that the bank was robbed.
Investigation revealed that a male suspect attended the bank and approached a teller. The male was carrying a knife in his hand and demanded cash from the teller. The teller gave the male an undetermined amount of cash. The male left the bank on foot. The teller immediately notified her co-workers and police were notified.
Officers were able to view security footage from inside the bank. The Officers observed the accused to have “distinct identifiers”. This information was shared with other police units in the area and at approximately 5:40pm, officers in the area of Wyandotte and Parent observed a male standing on the North West corner of the intersection.
The male was similar in stature to the male observed in the security video. As officers approached the male they observed the “distinctive identifiers” from the security video. The male was arrested without incident. Additional video evidence was seized from a bar in the 800 block of Wyandotte depicting the suspect. Investigators have also seized the knife believed to have been used in the robbery.
Police have charged Trevor Allen Spooner, a 35 year old Windsor man, with Robbery With A Weapon.
