An elderly woman is suspected of robbing the Toronto Dominion Bank at 1080 Douglas St. Monday afternoon.
Reports came in at approximately 3:45 p.m. that the downtown location had been robbed, but no weapon was confirmed at the scene.
A person using the ATM outside the branch said they saw what they believed to be two employees of the bank chase the suspect across Fort Street toward Chapters.
Police rushed to the scene and located the suspect in front of the bookstore, where she was arrested shortly after she fled, according to witnesses.
