Police search for man after attempted bank robbery

Bedfordshire Police are investigating an attempted robbery at a Luton building society.

CCTV shows a man entering the Nationwide branch in George Street at around 4.30pm on Friday 29 June. He handed a note to staff stating he had a knife and would use it to harm customers if they did not hand over cash.

The man was chased by staff and ran off in the direction of Upper George Street.

“We are keen to speak to a man in the footage, as we believe he may have information that could help our investigation. If you recognise the man, please get in touch. It was a frightening incident for the Nationwide staff, and such activity won’t be tolerated in our county. Police are appealing for anyone with information about this incident or anyone who recognises the man to contact them."
