This is the terrifying moment a gun gang ambushed security guards in a 100,000 bank raid. Three masked men pounced at a branch of Santander in Walkden in the early hours of the morning. Footage shows how a G4S vehicle was parked in an alley at the side of the bank.
A distinctive Mini Cooper car, with the robbers on board is seen arriving in the street, as an innocent woman pedestrian walks by. One of two guards then alights from the van and starts to walk towards the entrance of the bank. The Mini pulls up at speed next to bollards near the pavement and the guard hurries towards the door of the bank, but one of gang springs from the car and tailgates him into the building.
The robber is then quickly followed by two others.
The armed men can be seen chasing the security guard into the bank
Once inside the building at the Ellesmere Shopping Centre in Bolton Road, one of the gang pressed a pistol into the guard s back after forcing him to lie on the floor. Within 30 seconds the gang emerge from the bank and drive off. One line of inquiry is that the gang had inside information.
As well as a handgun the gang were also armed with a machete. Their red Mini was later found abandoned behind a row of shops in nearby Sportside Avenue. The raid took place at around 1.20am on September 7th .
Neither of the cash couriers were injured but were left shocked by the ordeal. In recent weeks, Salford has also suffered another similar bank raid.
The distinctive Mini Cooper car used as a getaway car leaving the scene
Twelve days later – on Tuesday last week – two men escaped with 30,000 in another early morning bank raid in Salford. A guard was attacked outside the Royal Bank of Scotland in Mather Way, Pendleton, at the city s shopping centre.
The pair struck at 7.10am on September 19th and were armed with a crow bar.
Commenting on the Walkden raid,Sergeant Natasha Evans of GMP s Salford borough, said: This was a horrifying attack, which has left the victims extremely shaken.
Thankfully no-one was injured, but that doesn t excuse the terrifying ordeal that the victims had to endure at the hands of these violent men.
I would urge anyone that was in the area at the time of the robbery that thinks they might have seen anything that could help our investigation to please get in touch.
