POLICE are hunting a robber who struck at the RBS branch in The Square, Sale.
A man entered the bank and passed a threatening note to a cashier demanding money, shortly before 1.50pm yesterday.
The man then fled the scene along Springfield Road towards the canal with a quantity of cash in a dark rucksack.
As the man fled, a red dye pack placed with the cash was let off inside a nearby shop.
Officers searched The Square for the man but did not catch him and the search for the man is ongoing.
The branch was marked off as a crime scene yesterday afternoon. A note said the branch had closed for the day due to 'unforeseen circumstances'.
The crime scene tape was no longer there this morning.
Anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting incident number 981 of 30/08/17, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
