The incident happened at approximately 10am on Thursday 10 July at Barclays Bank on Bryant Road.
A man entered the premises and demanded money. Staff handed over a quantity of cash and he left. He was seen getting into a metallic light green coloured Peugeot estate car parked on the service road behind the bank. The car was occupied by another person and it drove off toward Mossley Road.
