Armed robbers hold up HSBC bank in Alperton
Pair storm branch brandishing a sawn-off shotgun
The hunt is on to find two armed robbers who held up a bank in Alperton this morning (Friday).
The pair stormed into HSBC in Ealing Road at around 10.40am, with one man demanding money while the other brandished a sawn-off shotgun.
Both fled empty-handed after a cashier ducked under the counter arousing their suspicion that an alarm had been set off.
Detectives believe one of the robbers fled on a pedal bike.
Both men are white, around 5ft 10-11ins tall and of an athletic built.
One was wearing dark parka jacket with a fur trim around the hood.
