The RCMP descended on downtown Kelowna Monday afternoon for a robbery.

Police declined to provide further details about the incident, however the TD bank branch was closed and police were in the alleyway behind the building. The RCMP dog unit was also on scene.

The TD Bank branch posted a notice on its front doors around 2:30 p.m. that the location would be temporarily closed for the day due to an “emergency situation.”

The bank branch is located at Leon Avenue and Ellis Street.

Bank officials declined to comment when reached describing it as a “police matter.”

More to come.
