A 22-year-old man has been arrested and charged with two violent Brampton bank robberies in which customers were grabbed by their necks and had a gun pointed at their heads.
Police arrested Sean Demeritte of no fixed address Monday (Aug. 27), just three days after releasing a video surveillance photograph of a suspect.
He has been charged with two counts of robbery and two counts of using an imitation firearm while committing an offence.
The two robberies happened within 40 minutes of each other on Wednesday morning (Aug. 22).
The first was at 9:20 a.m. at the TD Bank in a plaza at Cottrelle Boulevard and Highway 50.
A 64-year-old Brampton making a cash deposit at the counter was approached from behind, put in a headlock, and had a gun put to his head, according to police. He was ordered to hand over his cash, which he did, and the bandit ran out.
Around 10 a.m., and just four kilometres away, at an RBC bank at Castlemore Road and McVean Drive, a customer – a 50-year-old Toronto man – was grabbed by the neck and a handgun was pointed at his head.
Police said neither customer was injured.
Peel’s Central Robbery Bureau credited the community and the media for help in the investigation.
