Following a proactive police operation, three men were arrested this morning, 3 October, in connection with the robbery of a security custodian as he delivered cash to a bank in central London.

At around 04.50hrs the man was assaulted as he walked from his van to the HSBC Bank in Baker Street near to the junction with Crawford Street, W1. No weapon was seen.

The male robber was able to snatch a cashbox from the victim, but was immediately arrested by Flying Squad officers in an intelligence-led operation.

A short time later, two further men were arrested at addresses in north London on suspicion of conspiracy to commit robbery.

All three men remain in custody at a central London police station.
