There have been a number of shocking robberies which have taken place in London over the course of 2019.
In one case, detectives released a picture of a suspect who carried out two bank robberies in Hounslow and Brent.
The man entered the Bank of India in Hounslow on January 19, 2018, where he approached the front counter and handed the cashier a letter which said he had a bomb.
He ordered her to go to a staff area where he then said it was a robbery and demanded cash while repeating that he had a bomb.
The suspect brandished a knife and threatened them.
He then threatened a customer who walked in and ordered her towards the back of the bank.
He continued to make threats until the cash was handed to him. The suspect then fled with a bag containing over £12,000.
The second robbery took place on February 12, 2018, when he entered the ICICI Bank in Brent.
He claimed to have a weapon, however, he fled empty-handed when the alarm was activated.
Detective Constable Alan Mears, of the Met’s Flying Squad, called the robberies “violent”.
He urged those who recognised the suspect to come forward and provide information.
