Customer robbed at Scotiabank on Bay Street


The scene of the robbery on Thursday morning.

A ROBBERY took place this morning at Scotiabank on Bay Street.

The incident happened at around 10.45am when two men snatched what appeared to be a deposit bag from a customer waiting outside. The two robbers then fled east along Bay Street.

An armoured vehicle was present with security guards at the time of the robbery but did not appear to be the target.

Police arrived at the scene as the search got underway for the two robbers.

There appeared to be no serious injuries.

This is the downside of banks having customers wait outside in the heat. That branch is quite roomy inside and can comfortably hold a certain amount of people but yet insists on only letting a few persons in at a time. Criminals likely had time to plan this.

I do not know if the banks here get a kick of keeping people in the hot sun. Not to mention their customer service once you go in. It probably takes 1 hour to serve one cistomer.Anyway even doctors now admit the pandemic is basically over. However the banks are acting as "abundance of precaution".

The practice of forcing customers to stand outside is simply self serving and has nothing to do with COVID. Another example of the wanton disregard the Banks have for anyone other than themselves. Pitiful.

Why is it ok for unlimited amount of customers to enter the food stores but we have to wait outside banks in the heat and rain? There is no reason not to go back to regular banking. THIS IS DISGUSTING SERVICE

For so long so many people have been whining about the service provided by the various banks. Unlike having to deal with government agencies you do have a choice with banks. Please all you whiners just close out your account and never go back, See, isn't that simple?

Customers having to wait outside a bank with deposit bag of cash, how degrading, Tops Lumber and J.B.R can hire a police guard daily to protect their valued customers and these lousy banks only has a door opener for security, to the banks their customers are not worth the security. These banks are just takers.
