Couriers Attacked In Havant Bank Robbery

Police release description of suspects involved in Havant bank robbery.

The robbers reportedly used an angle grinder and an axe to smash their way into the Nationwide in Park Parade, Leigh Park in Havant at 10.28pm on Friday night.

They took four cash cassettes and left the scene in a small dark coloured car, possibly a VW Golf, which had been waiting nearby.

Police now believe that at least three people were involved.
One man is described as:
* at least 6ft tall
* wearing a balaclava and dark clothing
* having a Southern accent.
The other man is described as:
* shorter and stockier than the first man
* wearing a balaclava and dark clothing
* having a Southern accent.
Police believe the robbery may be linked to a theft of number plates from Highlawn Way and ask residents and passers by to report any suspicious activity in Highlawn Way and the surrounding area on the evening of the robbery.
Officers are also urging people to report any suspicious activity involving small dark coloured cars, such as unusual manoeuvres or abandoned cars, as they are keen to confirm the movements of the vehicle before and after the robbery.
Anyone with any information is urged to call Hampshire police on 101.
