bicycle bank robber

ACT Policing has released CCTV images of the man responsible for an aggravated robbery in Civic on Friday, July 20 in the hope someone can identify him.

The man entered the Westpac bank on Alinga Street, Civic, around 3pm, and threatened a teller with what appeared to be a firearm.

He took a sum of cash and left the bank on a blue bicycle. There were no customers in the bank at the time of the robbery.

The man dropped a bundle of stolen cash on the footpath on the corner of Rudd and Moore Streets. The cash was handed in to police a short time later.

The man is described as a Caucasian in appearance, approximately 183cm (6’) tall, aged between 40-50 years old with a medium build. He was wearing black tracksuit pants, and a dark jacket. He had an item of clothing covering his head and the lower part of his face.

Police are urging anyone who recognises the man in the CCTV images to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

I can tell from the frame shape that he is a girl.

A lateral thinker may even suggest that it was stolen from a girl…

if cyclists had rego plates, we could stop this 😛

Plates that are small enough to be safe for pedestians and other cyclists in a collision would not be legible, plus they’d be easy enough to steal if they can be safely attached to a carbon frame.
