Two arrested in connection with Oadby bank robbery

Police have arrested two men after an armed robbery at a Santander branch in Oadby Parade.

The two men, aged 25 and 21, are both from Leicester. The robbery took place last week on Thursday 9 May.

Dramatic video footage was captured of the gang of masked men smashing their car into the front of the Santander branch, shattering the glass panel.

The four men, who’s faces were covered with balaclavas then made their way into the building. They were in possession of weapons, including baseball bats.

Leicestershire Police appealed for witnesses to come forward and following their enquiries the two men were arrested.

Both men currently remain in police custody and enquires are continuing into the incident.

Detective Inspector Mark Parish said: “While these arrests have been made, the investigation remains ongoing and we continue to appeal to anyone who has any information to make contact with us.”

“If you have any footage of the incident which you have not yet provided to us, please do so. If you have any CCTV or dashcam footage from the time of the incident, please also check this.”

 “We would like to thank everyone who has provided information to us so far and assisted us in this investigation.”

Anyone with any information is asked to call Leicestershire Police on 101.
