On Saturday 27th July 2013, a lone male suspect entered the RBC bank located on Speers Road and Forth Line in Oakville. The suspect armed with a handgun and wearing a full face mask and fake beard robbed the bank of an undisclosed quantity of cash and fled to a waiting vehicle and driver.

Both accused fled the area in the vehicle only to be involved in a minor motor vehicle accident a short distance away from the bank.

Witnesses were able to give police a description of the fleeing motor vehicle and officers were quickly able to determine that the accident and the bank robbery were connected.

Two suspects were arrested at the accident scene and will be facing several charges in relation to the robbery. The stolen money was recovered and the firearm was determined to be a toy handgun.

Both accused will be held for a bail hearing.

The accident is still under investigation, there was no police involvement at the time of the accident.
