Video released after violent robbery of woman, 81, at Aurora bank

NEWS STAFF | posted Thursday, Aug 3rd, 2017

Police have released video and photos of a man wanted in connection with the violent robbery of an 81-year-old woman at a bank in Aurora.

It happened shortly before 7:30 p.m. Monday, after the woman withdrew cash from an ATM near Yonge and Wellington streets.

It’s alleged a man approached her and tried to grab her money. When she resisted, he reportedly pushed her to the ground and took the cash. He then left the area on foot.

The woman was treated in hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

“You’re not getting the money for nothing,” the feisty senior tells CityNews in an exclusive interview.

“I thought of the cameras and I wanted to try and get a picture of his face because it’s no good if I don’t get his face.”

The man is white, five-foot-seven, with dark hair. He was wearing a white T-shirt, dark-coloured cargo shorts and black sunglasses.

Anyone with information is asked to call York Regional Police or Crime Stoppers.
