Ottawa Police released details of two separate cases on November 13. One involved a stabbing on an OC Transpo bus. The other involved an armed bank robbery. The authorities at the Ottawa Police Service are now asking the public for their help in identifying persons of interest in both cases.

The stabbing aboard a city bus occurred on November 11 at approximately 2:30 p.m., according to a media release. Police said that a male victim received "non-life-threatening injuries."

In this case, the Ottawa Police are asking for the public's help in identifying two individuals who may have some knowledge of what happened during the altercation.

The release describes the first person as "a light skinned Black male, 18-23 years of age with shoulder-length hair." It also states that he is approximately 5'9" and thin. During the altercation, he was seen wearing "a black jacket, black and white running shoes, low riding pants and a burgundy backpack."

The other person is described as "a Caucasian female, 18-23 years of age with long dark hair," standing at 5'7" with a medium build. During the incident, she was wearing "black Ugg-type boots and a pink bomber jacket."

Anyone who may know the names of these two people is urged to contact the Ottawa Police Service West Investigation Unit at 613-236-1222, extension 2666.

The Ottawa Police are also requesting the public's help in identifying suspects in an armed robbery case.

The police state that on November 12, "two heavily disguised male suspects, each armed with a handgun, entered a bank along the 2000 block of City Park Drive," where they went behind the counter and stole an "undisclosed amount" of money, according to the release.

The first suspect is described as "a black male, well over 6’ (183cm), thin build, wearing a green sweater, a plaid Yukon-style winter hat and black pants."

The second suspect is described as "a male with darker skin, 6’ (183cm), thin build, wearing a dark grey or black Canada Goose parka, orange gloves and light grey pants."

The suspects left the scene in what is believed to be a "black Toyota C-HR crossover vehicle," according to the release. Approximately two hours later, police believe the suspects robbed a second bank in Kingston.

Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to contact the Ottawa Police Robbery Unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 5116.

Anonymous tips can also be given for both cases through Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), or crimestoppers.ca.

The police will often turn to the public for assistance. The Halifax Police offered a reward for help in the investigation into the murder of Triston Reece.

Similarly, Peel Regional Police offered a reward for information regarding the murder of Jason Ramkishun.

Ottawa Police were also looking for two men involved in a stabbing outside of an IKEA.
