Police say the man entered the bank with a disguise and took off in a dark coloured bicycle

Leduc RCMP are looking for a disguised man who robbed an ATB Financial bank.

The man used bear spray to threaten staff at the branch on 50 Avenue Dec. 6 at 2:25 p.m. He was wearing what appears to be a mask (pictures supplied) and demanded cash from employees.

“The suspect male fled the bank northbound on a dark coloured bike,” say police.

“The suspect was wearing a disguise but was described as being 5’7” tall, Caucasian, wearing a grey sweatshirt and black pants and shoes.”

Police add that the bear spray wasn’t used in the incident and no one was injured.
