Milton Bank Teller Injured in Armed Robbery

Two suspects are on the run following a gunpoint bank robbery in Milton which sent a teller to hospital.

Halton police were dispatched to the Scotiabank at Main St. and Thompson Rd. just before 8 p.m. Friday night.

That’s where two males entered the bank brandishing a pistol and demanding money from the tellers, say police.

They left with cash and were last seen running eastbound toward the Milton Library and Performing Arts Centre.

A male teller has a minor head injury after being struck by one of the suspects with the butt end of the pistol, say investigators.

He’s expected to recover.

Suspect descriptions haven’t been released.
