A man has been arrested on suspicion of two bank robberies in Rugby and Nuneaton.
It follows an incident at the Royal Bank of Scotland in Church Street, Rugby, on Thursday October 8 where a man threatened staff with a small axe and demanded money before leaving on foot.
A second incident took place at the Royal Bank of Scotland on Queen’s Street in Nuneaton today (Monday October 12) about 11.15am when a cashier was threatened with a weapon and ordered to hand over cash.
No one was injured during either incident but a substantial amount of cash was taken.
A 41-year-old was arrested in Nuneaton town centre shortly after the incident today and is currently in police custody.
Cash and a weapon have been recovered by police.
