Police released new details earlier this week about the stabbing of a banker at the bank in Chinatown

Police released new details about the stabbing of a bank teller at a bank in Chinatown earlier this week.

It happened just before 1 p.m. Monday at a branch of the Bank of Montreal on Spadina Avenue near Dundas Street.

Police say a male suspect entered the bank wearing a mask and hood and pulled a knife.

He would then have jumped over the counter, approached an employee and asked for money.

The employee took money from their wallet and offered it to the suspect, police said.

The suspect took the money, but then allegedly stabbed the employee several times.

The worker was then taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say the suspect fled the bank through an emergency exit at the rear of the property.

“He is considered armed, violent and dangerous,” police said in a press release on Thursday.

The suspect is described as black, between 20 and 30 years old with a slim build. He was last seen wearing a yellow toque, red hoodie, black jacket, ripped jeans, red running shoes and a white mask. He also had a black backpack with him.

The police are calling on the public for help in locating the suspect.
