Fresh appeal following West Sussex bank robbery

Staff threatened by man with gun

Police have renewed an appeal for information about a bank robbery on a West Sussex high street last month.

Staff loading a cash machine at the Santander branch on Shoreham High Street were threatened by a man with a handgun at shortly before 11pm on February 27th.

They were forced to hand over a box containing several thousands of pounds.

No-one was hurt in the incident.

The robber - described as a white man, 5'10", in his 30s, with brown medium length hair - was wearing a blue hooded jacket and carrying a black pistol.

After grabbing the cash box he ran away on foot in a southerly direction.

Sussex Police said enquiries are continuing to try to identify and locate the suspect.

Anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in Shoreham High Street at the time, or who may have other information that could assist police, is asked to report details to Sussex Police online or phone 101, quoting Operation Graffiti.

Alternatively they can visit the Crimestoppers website or contact the independent charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
