Taxi firm robbery – do you know this man?

February 19, 2013, 4:46 pm

Bath police have issued a picture of a man they want to trace in connection with an armed robbery at the V Cars taxi offices in Cheltenham Street on Monday February 11.

He is white, in his mid to late 20s, around 5ft 10ins tall and of stocky build. He was dressed in black with a woollen hat pulled down over his face and a fleece top zipped up to his chin. He had gloves on and was carrying a small rucksack-type bag with a long shoulder strap.

He threatened the owner of the taxi company with a handgun and stole a quantity of cash from a safe.

He ran off down the stairs pursued by a male member of staff, who chased him into Westmoreland Street and under the railway line, where he was lost to sight.

Anyone who recognises the man from the picture, or who saw a man matching the description in the area at around 5.15 to 5.30pm on Feb 11, is asked to call Bath CID on 101.
