'Box Cutter Bandit' arrested, charged in 3 bank robberies

Toronto police have arrested the so-called "Box Cutter Bandit," weeks after they first described him to the public.

In April, police held a news conference, in which they detailed a series of bank robbery suspects they were looking to identify.

Among them was a man who was alleged to have robbed several banks on Bloor Street West during the month of March.

Police alleged that the suspect had produced a box cutter-type knife during the robberies.

On Tuesday, police made an arrest.

John Castonguay, 46, of Toronto faces three counts of robbery and three counts of possession of a weapon. He was expected to appear in court today.
