Toronto Police Nab “Pleather Bandit”

Toronto Police arrest man wanted in bank robbery on March 11th.

He was dubbed the “Pleather Bandit” because of his apparently fake leather jacket.  Earlier this week Toronto Police held a news conference releasing photos of various men wanted in 10 of the 12 unsolved bank robberies this year. 

In the case of the “Pleather Bandit” police say a man walked into the Bank of Montreal at King Street West and Dufferin on March 11th at around 4:10p.m.  He handed the teller a note stating he had a gun and demanded cash. 

On Wednesday police received a tip from the public and arrested and charged 51-year-old Gustav Khan of Toronto.  He is charged with one count of robbery. 

Investigators are still searching for three other men wanted in connection with robberies throughout the city. 

Toronto Police hold update on bank robberies.
