A bank robbery in Murcia resembled a plot from a movie
National Police sources have confirmed that three robbers broke into the branch of a bank located on Avenida Juan Carlos I in the capital of Murcia province at around midday this Tuesday, October 19. After handcuffing six of the bank’s employees, along with four customers who were present, the thieves fled without causing personal harm to any of their captives.
This whole event was captured by the bank’s security camera system. Police investigators are now busy analysing the content of the footage, along with statements given by witnesses. They are hoping to gather evidence that will lead to the identification and location of the three assailants.
Luckily, nobody was injured during the Murcia bank robbery
No information has been released in relation to the amount of money the robbers escaped with. Fortunately, none of the employees or customers needed treatment from the health professionals who had been deployed to the scene.
According to La Opinion de Murcia, a passing pedestrian was responsible for alerting the emergency services to the robbery. He had reportedly spotted the three as they fled from the bank, and immediately called 112.
“I’m after the robbers”, he is reported to have told them when he called, and apparently this witness tried to follow the thieves, until he lost sight of them. The alarm was also automatically raised by the bank’s security cameras, as reported by 20minutos.es.
