Did You Witness Stabbing In Long Eaton Today
Two G4S security guards locked themselves in their van after being attacked at a bank in Long Eaton.
On Tuesday three men targeted the cash delivery van at Santander on High Street.
They threatened the delivery drivers and stabbed one of them twice to the side of his body. The second driver was punched in the face before they managed to lock themselves in the van.
The offenders made off with a case containing cash which was later found on Fletcher Street along with an Audi A3.
The Audi was used to reverse over the case a number of times which activated a blue dye security device.
The attack happened at 4.20am and the road was closed for most of the day.
Steve Cain, 55, Owner of S&R News in High Street, opposite Santander, said: “I got in about 4.45am and the street was all cordoned off, the cops were there and asked if I was from G4S security.
“There were scene of crime officers with white suits on.
“We saw the van and the security guard’s helmet was at the side of van.
“I thought it had just been a break in, it’s quite normal to see windows boarded up.”
A spokesman from Nottinghamshire Police said: “It is possible that at least one of the offenders has been contaminated with the blue dye.
“A small silver car was used by the offenders to drive away from Fletcher Street.”
The security guard was treated at the Queens Medical Centre for his stab wounds where he was later discharged.
