Police are appealing for witnesses to a robbery to come forward following an incident at Barclays Bank in Penkridge in the last hour. Police were called by staff at just after 4:50 pm today reporting three males had appeared in the building and demanded cash.
No weapons were seen and thankfully none of the staff have been injured. It is reported that the three men made off in the silver coloured hatch back car onto the A449. Police are urging anyone who may have seen anything suspicious to call the police immediately. It is possible that the suspects will abandon their car and change into another vehicle soon after the incident so any reports of suspicious vehicles may help the police.
At this very early stage we are unable to confirm any further details.
Anyone with any information is urged to call Staffordshire Police on 101 or 999 in an emergency. Police are currently responding and a full examination of the scene will take place.
