A Bangkok Bank branch in the capital’s Thung Khru district was robbed on Wednesday afternoon (January 22), the lone perpetrator wielding a pistol snatched from a security guard.

Thung Khru police got the call at about 2pm and were soon at the bank inside a Tesco Lotus on Soi Pracha Uthit 58.

The security guard said the robber used his .38 pistol while ordering tellers to hand over an as-yet-unverified amount of cash, and then fled on a black Yamaha Fino motorcycle with no licence plate.

Witnesses described the suspect as 155-160 centimetres tall, slim and wearing a dark jacket, jeans and sneakers, black gloves, a purple motorcycle helmet and a blue backpack.
