Three Kings ASB robbed

Central Leader - - News -

Staff and cus­tomers were left shaken af­ter two men, one bran­dish­ing a firearm, robbed the ASB Bank in Three Kings on Mon­day morn­ing.

De­tec­tive sergeant Ge­off Baber says the of­fend­ers en­tered the bank at 11.45am and de­manded money, which was handed over by tell­ers.

They fled with an undis­closed amount of cash in a stolen black Subaru Forester, num­ber plate EJP105, which po­lice were yes­ter­day still search­ing for.

Mr Baber says sev­eral mem­bers of the pub­lic were in the bank dur­ing the rob­bery.

“They are quite dis­turbed and trau­ma­tised.”

Po­lice are speak­ing to wit­nesses and will do a foren­sic ex­am­i­na­tion of the scene.

The of­fend­ers, who are de­scribed as Maori or Pa­cific Is­land, were heav­ily dis­guised and po­lice will be view­ing video footage of the in­ci­dent in an ef­fort to iden­tify them.
