At 11:40 am on Friday, December 23, 2016, Halton Regional Police tweeted that they were dealing with an incident at a financial institution at 3rd Line and Dundas by the new Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital. It was later reported that it was an attempted robbery of the Royal Bank of Canada at 2501 Third Line.

At 10:50 AM Halton Police notified all the schools in the neighbourhood. When schools are notified they go into lock down as a precaution. School administrators then notify parents that the school is on lock down, and will also indicate when the school is re-opened. Naturally, this being the last day of school before the holiday break, parents were concerned. At 11:47 AM the schools were notified that the schools were re-opened.

Two males entered the bank at 10:43 AM with one of the males brandishing a handgun and both shouting for everyone to get on the ground. One of the males then proceeded to make his way behind the counter and approached the tellers.

An off duty Toronto Police Officer confronted the two males. One of the males fled the bank immediately. The officer attempted to arrest the second male; however, this male was also able to flee the bank following a brief struggle.

No money was taken from the bank and the males were last seen heading east on Dundas Street.
