Reports have surfaced regarding attempted Bank Robbery in Brampton. It is astonishing to know that the incident took place in a broad daylight during peak hours. As per the reports, there were about 10 customers inside the premises of the bank when two armed males entered the bank.
The police are still investigating this crime scene but it is believed that only one gunshot was fired inside the CIBC on Bovaird Drive near Conestoga Drive.

Recent events and incidents happening in this Brampton area have raised concerns over safety and security. I would be noticeable to see what Jagmeet Singh (seen to serve as the next Prime Minister of Canada), who recently celebrated his Rokha Ceremony, has to say about this incident.
