Winnipeg police have a suspect in a string of robberies at downtown financial institutions during April. 

Police said there have been five thefts since April 2 and in each incident a lone male wearing a mask demanded money from a teller and was given an undisclosed amount. 

Three of the robberies were on Portage Avenue, and two on Broadway.

Police said the suspect is a 38-year-old Winnipeg man, who will face five robbery charges and charges of using a disguise to commit a crime.

He was also wanted on a Canada-wide warrant of apprehension and suspension. 

The man is being held at the Provincial Remand Centre.
