Armed Raid In Bedworth Building Society

A robber held up a building society in Bedworth, and made off with cash after he threatened a cashier.

The man walked into the Coventry Building Society in King Street, Bedworth, just after noon on Tuesday.

A police spokesman said:

“He is believed to have had a gun under a carrier bag and went into the building society and threatened the 20-year-old male cashier, who handed over an undisclosed amount of cash.”

The armed robber is described as aged 35 to 40, with a slim build, unshaven with several days’ growth, an oval face with small eyes and thin lips, and about 5ft 10in tall.

He was wearing a light blue flat cap and a check blue shirt which was hanging loose over his beige Chino-type type trousers, with white training shoes and a grey sweatshirt.

Bedworth police are working with West Midlands officers to see if there are links with similar incidents on their patch.

Anyone who was in King Street at the time should ring Bedworth CID on 01926 415000.
