A 37-year-old Winnipeg man is facing a charge of robbery after allegedly attempting to rob a bank.

On Monday,  at around 4:10 p.m., Winnipeg police were called to hold-up alarm at a banking institution in the 200 block of Portage Avenue.

Downtown Foot Patrol officers quickly attended and located a suspect still inside the bank. He was arrested without incident.

Police say the suspect attended the bank and presented a note to an employee demanding money. No weapon was used, and no funds were obtained. The employee activated a distress alarm, which prompted a quick police response.

The 37-year-old suspect was released on an undertaking as mandated by the Criminal Code.
