Police ask public who helped Nottingham cashpoint robbery victim to come forward

Police are appealing for three witnesses who helped a woman following a cashpoint robbery to come forward.

The victim was withdrawing cash from outside Lloyds Bank in Lower Parliament Street, Nottingham city centre when the incident happened.

After a man grabbed the money, a scuffle took place in which the victim – a woman in her sixties – was pushed to the ground.

She suffered minor injuries after banging her head on the floor during the incident, which happened at around 9:45 a.m. on Saturday (2 September).

Two men – one on foot and one on a pushbike – managed to retrieve the stolen cash after chasing the robber down Clinton Street West, while a woman helped the victim get back on her feet.

The suspect managed to flee from the scene, with police launching an investigation to try and track down the man responsible.

As part of this, officers are now appealing for the three people who assisted the woman to come forward to assist them with their inquiries.

Detective Constable Samantha Fowler, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a distressing incident for the victim that understandably left her shaken up.

“From speaking to her, we know that multiple people saw what happened and three bystanders actually stepped in to help her and even got her stolen money back.

“We don’t know the names of the people who assisted the victim but it is important that they come forward and speak to us, as they will have important information that could assist our investigation.

“This incident took place in a busy part of the city centre in broad daylight, so we’d ask that anyone else who saw what happened contacts the police too.”

Information can be left by calling the police on 101, quoting incident 329 of 2 September 2023, or by calling Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
