A man wearing a motorcycle helmet and waving a gun robbed a Kasikorn Bank branch near Tesco Lotus Chaofa branch in central Phuket on Monday and made off with about 260,000 baht.
Footage from a surveillance camera at the bank showed an unidentified man in his 20s entering the bank at 12.30pm and threatening a female employee with what appeared to be .38 pistol and ordered her to put money in a brown paper bag. He wore a half helmet, long-sleeved jacket and jeans.
He then ran out of the bank and fled on a Yamaha Fino motorbike, heading to East Vichit Road, police said.
