Winnipeg police arrested a suspect Thursday afternoon who allegedly held up a bank in the 200 block of Portage Avenue.
Police were called just after 4 p.m. after downtown foot patrol officers located the suspect inside the bank.
Police learned the suspect presented a note to a teller and demanded money. No weapon was used during the robbery and no funds were obtained. The employee activated a distress alarm, which immediately summoned police.
A 37-year-old Winnipeg man is facing a robbery charge and was released pending a court appearance.
