Bandit nets B100k in bank heist

- +

A lone gunman robbed a Siam Commercial Bank branch in Pathum Thani’s Khlong Luang district on Sunday afternoon and made off with about 100,00 baht in cash. 

The bandit posed as a customer waiting in line to carry out a transaction and then took only five minutes to rob the bank in the Nawanakhon branch of Big C supermarket and escaped with 100,900 baht. 

Jutharat Klinpayorm, a 26-year-old teller, said after she finished assisting a woman customer, she saw the robber, who was waiting next to her, wearing a black full-face balaclava, which he had just pulled over his face. He was also wearing a camouflage army jacket and a pair of jeans, and was tall. He pointed a gun at her and ordered her in an Isaan accent to stuff banknotes from the counter into the bag in his hand.
