Man allegedly setting fire to two ATMs in Toronto wanted by police

Toronto police are looking to identify a man they say set fire to two separate ATMs in North York.

In a news release issued Thursday morning, investigators said the first incident took place on Aug. 2 at about 6 p.m. 13:10 in the area of ​​Wilson Avenue and Jane Street.

At the time, police said they were responding to a fire call at a nearby bank. It is said that a man had set fire to the ATM located inside.

Just over three months later, investigators believe the same man set fire to another ATM located inside a bank near Leslie Street and York Mills Road on Nov. 5 at about 5 p.m. 20.30.

Both fires caused significant damage to the machines, police said.

Surveillance footage of the suspect, which appears to have been taken from the machines themselves, has been released by police in an attempt to identify him.


The man is described by police as standing between five-foot-four to five-foot-five inches tall, 40 to 60 years old, with a bald or shaved head. He has a medium to strong build and was clean shaven during both incidents.

Police are asking anyone with information in connection with the investigation to contact them or Crime Stoppers.
