The incident happened on November 10, between 5.40am and 5.50am, at the Winter Gardens branch on Parliament Street.

It involved three men between the ages of 25 and 33 years old, who were making attempts to cover their faces with dark coloured scarves.

Two of the men forced entry into the premises via the external bin store area and through several internal doors leading into the manager’s office, while the third waited in a maroon coloured Ford hatchback vehicle within the rear car park adjacent to The Ginnel.
