Police are appealing for witnesses after an attempted robbery at Halifax bank on Linthorpe Road, Middlesbrough at around 1:10pm today.

After entering the branch, a man went up to the cashier’s desk and pushed a note against the glass. It stated that he wanted money and that he had a gun in his carrier bag. Staff raised the alarm and the man quickly left the bank empty-handed.

No one was injured during the incident and no weapon was seen, however officers are conducting local area searches for the man and a team of detectives have launched an investigation.

Brief initial descriptions indicate that the man was of slim build and wearing a grey hat, however police are working to clarify further details.

Officers are keen to speak to anyone who may have been in the bank at the time or noticed anything suspicious in the local area. Police believe that some witnesses could have seen ‘a commotion’ in the bank and left before realising what was happening.

Anyone with information or who knows who may be responsible is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
