ACT Policing is responding to two armed hold ups at separate banks this afternoon (Wednesday, September 21).
About 1.40 pm a man has entered the Commonwealth Bank on Wollongong Street in Fyshwick. He approached the counter saying he had a bomb and a gun and demanded money. The man left shortly after without any money.
The second hold up occurred just after 2 pm at the CPS Credit Union in Manuka. A man with a similar description to the earlier incident entered the credit union, claiming to have a bomb and a gun, demanding money from the teller. The man left with a sum of cash.
The man is described as in his late 30’s, approximately 170 – 180 cm tall, wearing a hat, light blue long sleeve top, long pants and carrying a brown briefcase.
Anyone who may be able to assist police with the investigation is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.
