Money stolen in security guard attack

Updated 21st March 2017

The Enderby branch of Barclays Bank was closed today (17th March) following an attack on a G4S security man.

Leicestershire Police report money was stolen and are appealing for information.

The Leicester Mercury reports that a security guard was attacked and robbed while delivering cash to the bank in the morning.

The paper goes on to report that the guard was attacked and threatened outside the Bank in Broad Street, Enderby shortly before midday.

In an appeal issued on the 20th March, police said:

A security van driver was making a delivery of cash to Barclays bank in Broad Street at around 11.20am on Friday 17 March.

He was approached by two men, one of which hit him on the arm with a crowbar, before they made off with a quantity of cash into a silver Ford Fiesta which was waiting with a driver nearby.

The Fiesta was later found abandoned in Mill Lane, Enderby.

The driver sustained a minor injury to his arm and didn’t have medical treatment.

Officers are looking at CCTV at neighbouring properties and appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident.

One of the firm’s guards was pushed to the ground outside the bank. He suffered cuts and grazes to his hands and arms.

The bank opened for business as normal on Monday 20th.

There is speculation that the thieves will be disappointed because cash in transit is usually protected by dye rendering the haul unusable.

 

Police are appealing for anyone who saw the silver Ford Fiesta parked in the area and the three people inside to get in touch. Did anyone see it being abandoned? Does anyone know who the suspects are?

All calls will be treated in confidence.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact DC 4274 Jenny Allsop on 101 quoting crime number 17*113514.

Can you help police identify the men in these images?

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.”
