Police have released images after a man threatened to shoot staff during a bank robbery in Didsbury.
The man went into the NatWest bank on Wilmslow Road and handed a cashier a note, which told them to fill a bag with cash or he would shoot them.
After staff handed over a small amount of cash, the man got into a blue Peugeot 207 and headed towards Parrs Wood.
Two images of a man and a woman police now want to speak to have been released and officers are appealing for anyone who witnessed the robbery or saw the man fleeing the scene in the Peugeot to come forward.
The incident happened at around 1.45pm on Tuesday, April 18.
Detective Inspector Mark Astbury, of GMP’s City of Manchester Team, said: “Staff members have been left extremely shaken by this stressful ordeal, all for petty cash.
“This happened on a busy main road in the centre of Didsbury, surrounded by shops and restaurants, so I’m sure someone must’ve seen something and I’m urging them to get in touch.”
