Detectives investigating a robbery at an agency of Santander in Narborough have released images of two suspects they are trying to identify and trace.
The incident took place at the Santander agency in Leicester Road, Narborough around 11.40am on Wednesday October 16.
Two men wearing dark clothing, gloves and face coverings entered the Santander agency and stole a quantity of cash and blank signed cheques.
No one was hurt during the incident and no weapons were seen.
One of the suspects has been described as being around 30 years-old, about 5’10” tall, of medium build. The second man has been described as being of light skinned black or dual heritage appearance, around 18 years-old, about 6’ tall and of slim build.
Detective Constable Rebekah Cortez is investigating the incident, she said:
“This was a distressing incident for the staff at the agency and we need to catch those responsible.
“From enquiries we’ve conducted so far it’s believed the suspects made their way from School Lane along the jitty by the cemetery and out onto Thornton Drive next to the school where they stayed for a few minutes before the robbery.
“They then made off via the same route back onto School Lane. We now know that there was another man sitting on a bench on Thornton Drive talking on his mobile telephone for several minutes before the robbery, we believe he is also linked to the incident.
“There are a number of nurseries on School Lane and Church Lane and a car park close by was being used by parents collecting their children around the time of the robbery.
“We would urge anyone who was in the area and remember seeing two men in dark clothing or the man sitting on the bench in Thornton Drive during the morning of Wednesday October 16 to contact us. We would also like to speak to anyone who recognises the men in the images or has any suspicions about who was responsible. Any calls received will be treated in confidence.”
