Second Chartwell bank robbery in two weeks

8:44 pm on 15 October 2009

[s] The Westpac bank at the Westfield shopping centre in the Hamilton suburb of Chartwell was robbed on Thursday afternoon.

The police say a man entered the bank just before 2pm and handed a note to the teller demanding money, before fleeing on foot.

They say they are examining whether there are any links to a similar bank robbery, at the ASB branch in Chartwell, earlier this month.
