Bank Customer Robbed Of Cash

Detectives investigating a robbery in Poole are releasing images of two men they would like to speak with.

Two men stole a large quantity of money from a customer inside the NatWest Bank at the junction of Kingland Road and High Street North, between 2pm and 2.45pm on Tuesday 28 August 2012.

The victim, a 37-year-old Poole man, was making cash deposits at the counter when he was barged aside and the money was stolen. The victim chased after the culprits and was assaulted – he was left with a broken finger and bruising.

Both escaped in a black Lexus that was parked nearby. This car was later found abandoned in the Poole area.
