Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

We’re appealing for witnesses following a cash-in-transit robbery that took place in Southampton earlier today (23 June).

The incident took place around 10.22am this morning, Wednesday, 23 June, in Angel Crescent, Bitterne.

Two men on a motorbike approached a Loomis security guard from behind as he made his way from Corals back to his van.

The passenger got off the motorbike and grabbed the cash box whilst threatening the security guard with a knife.

The two men made off on the motorbike with the cash box.

The first man is described as white, between 25 to 40 years old, approximately 5ft 8 inches tall and of slim build. He was wearing a black helmet with red on it, a black puffer or bomber jacket and black trousers.

The second man is described as white, between 25 to 40 years old and of slim build. He was wearing a black jacket with black trousers and a black, scrambler or off road style helmet without a visor. It also had a yellow section on the front.

The motorbike is described as an off road scrambler or dirt bike with off road tyres and was black with a black panel on the front.

The motorbike has since been recovered.
