On August 28, a man on a motorcycle showed up at the National Bank of Canada located on Sheridan Garden Road in Oakville and demanded cash. Nine days later, the same suspect came back with another man on a motorcycle and the two of them went in with a duffle bag and demanded cash. 

While no weapons were seen during the robbery, Halton Police say that one of the suspects indicated to employees that he had a weapon. 

"Approximately 20 minutes after the robbery in Oakville, a National Bank of Canada located on Fairview Street in Burlington was robbed by the same two suspects in a similar manner. No weapon was seen in this robbery," said Police.
