The Halton Regional Police Service has arrested one male suspect in connection with the robbery of an Oakville bank and an attempted robbery at an Oakville bus stop.

Just before 10:00 p.m. on May 31, 2018, a female victim was approached by a male at the Oakville Transit bus terminal located at Dundas Street and Trafalgar Road in Oakville. The male pressed an imitation firearm against the victim and demanded money. The victim advised she did not have any money on her, and the male then left in the direction of Trafalgar Road.

On the afternoon of June 2, 2018, the same male entered the TD Canada Trust bank located at 2325 Trafalgar Road in the Town of Oakville. Armed with an imitation firearm, the male approached one of the tellers and demanded money. The teller gave the suspect a sum of money, and the male subsequently fled the bank.

Halton Regional Police Service officers immediately responded to the area and located the male in a nearby residential area. During the arrest, the suspect assaulted one of the officers. A foot pursuit ensued and the male was apprehended a short distance away. The officer was not injured during this incident.

Charged with Robbery with a Firearm x 2 and Assault Peace Officer is Vincenzo RASILE (51) of no fixed address. RASILE is being held for a bail hearing.
