Heart Breakfast with Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden 6:30am - 10am
CCTV images have been released by Thames Valley Police of a man they'd like to speak to, in connection with an armed robbery at a bank in Henley on Tuesday 16th February.
Police say Lloyds TSB in Reading Road was targetted at around 4.40pm on Tuesday. A man walked into the branch and asked a member of staff if he could speak to them in a private room. He was taken into a side room, where he threatened the member of staff with what's believed to be a handgun. He then called another member of staff into the room and demanded she go and collect cash from the safe. He left the bank at around 5.05pm with what police are calling a "substantial amount" of cash.
Police have described the offender as Asian, about 5ft 8ins tall and approximately 30-years-old. He was wearing dark clothing, a woollen hat and gloves, and was carrying a dark square-ended sports holdall.
Detective Inspector Kev Elkins, who's leading the investigation, told Heart: “We are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area between 4.30pm and 5.30pm and saw anyone acting suspiciously outside or near to the bank. Thankfully, nobody was injured during the robbery but the members of staff were obviously shaken by what happened."
