Armed men raid Wembley bank in daylight robbery
Two armed men raided a bank in Wembley this morning in a daylight robbery.
The men stormed into the HSBC Bank in Ealing Road just before 11am this morning.
A man went up to front counter staff and demanded money to be handed over while holding a handgun.
The second man remained behind his accomplice in a foyer by the front door, holding a firearm, which is believed to be a sawn-off shotgun.
The cashiers ducked under the front counter and immediately raised the alarm, causing the suspects to flee empty-handed.
It is thought one suspect was travelling on a bicycle.
Both suspects are described as white, around 5ft 10ins, and of an athletic build.
They had each concealed the lower part of their faces with a scarf or high collar.
The second suspect was wearing a dark Parker jacket with a fur trim around its hood.
Anyone with information should call the incident room at The Finchley Flying Squad on 020 8358 1751 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 to remain anonymous.
