DETECTIVES investigating a violent robbery at a Nationwide bank have released CCTV images that could be key to their inquiries.
Two men with balaclavas broke into the bank in Park Parade, Leigh Park, just before 10.30pm on November 25 and assaulted the two couriers who were emptying the cash machine.
A large sum of cash was taken.
A man in a red top is seen on CCTV outside the bank immediately after the incident taking photographs on his mobile phone.
This man left the area before police arrived on scene in a dark coloured 4x4, which was parked by a crossing near the Lidl store in Somborne Drive.
Detective Sergeant Ross Toms said: ‘This person is not believed to be involved in the incident but appears to be an important witness. So far we have been unable to identify him.
‘If you are this person in the CCTV images or you know who this person could be please get in touch.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101.
