Toronto police are hoping security camera images can help them find a man who attacked and robbed a woman near a west end bank machine.

Police said a man, armed with a knife and a bottle of aerosol repellent, entered an ATM vestibule near Roncesvalles and Fern avenues around 10:40 p.m. last Thursday.

A 43-year-old woman who was using the bank was attacked, police said. Police didn't say if the woman was injured during the incident.

During the robbery, police said, a purple bandana stretched over the man's mouth was knocked free, allowing a clearer look at him as he fled.

It's unclear how much money, if any, he escaped with.

Police believe the man is 25- to 35-years-old and said he stands around 5-9 with a medium to large build.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact police directly or Crime Stoppers anonymously.
