Ottawa businesses are now being threatened by a new trend in crime that has moved up from the United States. So-called “flash robs” involve crowds of young people rushing into a store and grabbing goods with no attention paid to cameras or cashiers. Two such incidents have happened in Ottawa in past weeks, including a mob of more than 40 who trashed and grabbed their way through a west Ottawa convenience store in July. “What can we do?” asked cashier Elias Dxafaii.

Ottawa police are looking for a male suspect wanted for robbing a TD Canada Trust bank in the Alta Vista area earlier this month. Police surrounded a home on a nearby street after a bank on Kilborn Avenue was robbed late in the morning on July 8. A lone man apparently passed a note to the teller, demanding cash. He was last seen fleeing west on Kilborn Avenue with an undisclosed amount of money. Although police surrounded a home in the area, the suspect was not there. Police released a surveillance photo of the suspect on Wednesday. He is described as a black male between 19 and 25 years old. He is about six feet tall with a slim build. He was wearing a white T-shirt over a grey sweat shirt at the time of the robbery, along with a New York Yankees baseball cap. Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact Ottawa police at 613-236-1222, ext. 5116 or Crime stoppers at 613-233-8477 (TIPS).
