Police are still looking for a man who robbed the TD bank at Danforth and Woodbine Avenues Sunday afternoon.

Toronto Police have confirmed that on March 12, the East End bank was subject to a bank robbery after a man entered the bank around 3:30 p.m. and demanded money by handing the cashier a note that said he had a gun.
