A man who robbed a Bangkok branch of the Government Housing Bank at gunpoint has escaped with over 500,000 baht. Nation Thailand report that the robbery took place yesterday afternoon, at the bank’s Bangbon branch on Soi Ekachai 86 in the capital.

A security guard at the branch told police that the thief jumped over the counter, before grabbing the cash and running out. It’s understood nobody was hurt in the incident. CCTV footage shows a man wearing a long-sleeved grey shirt and a face mask entering the branch, before producing a gun and pointing it at employees. He produces a plastic bag, before jumping over the counter and grabbing cash from a drawer and making his escape.

It’s understood additional footage shows the man fleeing in a vehicle, headed towards Ekachai Road. The police investigation is ongoing.
