Shock as security guard left ‘badly shaken’ in robbery outside …

Residents and businesses have spoken of their shock after a security van robbery in Hessle[1].

A manhunt was launched after two men jumped a G4S security guard outside Barclays Bank[2] in Ferriby Road at 1.20pm yesterday. The two men were still on the run last night after racing away from the area in a red Renault Clio. G4S have said the guard was “badly shaken” by the attack. Those living and working nearby have described the dramatic moment police descended on the scene.

Stephen Hartley, 40, lives right next door to the bank. He said: “We were not here when the robbery happened but we returned at 2pm and there were police everywhere.

“It was quite a surprise to come back to something like this and I was a bit worried. I joked that there must have been a robbery and then shortly after I found out that is exactly what happened.

“I was told it was an armed robbery and you don’t expect something like that round here. I have lived here all my life and nothing like this has ever happened before.”

HU13 Kitchen[3] is just a couple of doors down from the bank and was serving customers at the time. Co-owner Ashley Curtis said: “We didn’t actually see what happened as it is just round the corner but suddenly lots of police arrived.

“One of our customers told us what was going on and it was a big shock. There were at least four police cars at one point.

“It did affect trade as people didn’t want to come where there were lots of police but we did serve quite a few officers cups of tea.”

Bluefin Insurance is situated right next to the bank but staff didn’t realise what was happening.

One staff member said: “We didn’t have a clue what was happening until more and more police arrived and then we realised something serious had happened.

“We saw a forensic team searching the area and the police were here for a good couple of hours. This is normally a really quiet area so it was a real shock to hear there had been a robbery.”

Police have now confirmed they are looking for a red Renault Clio which raced from the scene at 1.20pm. GS4 say they are working closely with police to help bring the robbers to justice. Head of Operational Risk for G4S Cash Solutions, Gareth Skinner said: “On Tuesday one of our cash crew members was attacked during a routine service at Barclays Bank on Ferriby Street, Hessle. Unfortunately our colleague was badly shaken by the incident.

“We are working closely with Humberside Police and I would urge anyone who may have been nearby and seen this attack to get in touch with the police or dial 101 so that those behind it can be brought to justice.”

Barclays Bank closed for the rest of the day after the robbery.

But a spokeswoman said: “We closed the bank for the day following the robbery and we apologise to customers for any inconvenience. But we should be open again as normal on Wednesday.

“Our staff helped the security guard and brought him into the bank and gave him a cup of tea. He was clearly shaken.”

Police say inquiries are underway and anyone with information should call 101 quoting log 277 of March 28.

Zags’ Collins & UNC’s Maye headline list of Final 4 X-factors

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) North Carolina s Luke Maye can t go to class without getting a standing ovation nor walk across campus without getting stopped by people requesting to take a photo with him. All because of one shot one that lifted the Tar Heels past Kentucky to reach the Final Four while turning the sophomore from rotation reserve to sudden star.

He s big-time now, junior Justin Jackson said. I feel like we need some security around campus.

Maye headlines a group of players that could emerge as X-factors in determining whether UNC, Gonzaga, Oregon or South Carolina wins the national championship. Don t sleep on Gonzaga s Zach Collins, Oregon s Jordan Bell or South Carolina s Rakym Felder.

The entire year, (coach Roy Williams) has been putting me in the games, wanting me to make good plays, Maye said Tuesday. Some games I hit a shot early, in other games I d just get a rebound or make a good pass. I m just trying to go out there and help my team win as best I can. The 6-foot-9 Maye entered last weekend as a player who has had some good moments including 15 rebounds against Florida State, 13 points at rival North Carolina State but generally played to spell starters Kennedy Meeks or Isaiah Hicks up front.

Yet he had shown a soft shooting touch and the ability to pull defending big men out to the perimeter. And when Hicks got in early foul trouble against Butler in the Sweet 16, Maye became much more than a sub for the Tar Heels (31-7). The guy who came in averaging 5.1 points in 13.8 minutes per game went for 16 points and 12 rebounds in the win against the Bulldogs. Then, with Hicks struggling against the Wildcats in the Elite Eight, Maye scored 17 points the last two coming on that jumper with 0.3 seconds left for the 75-73 win. Maye made 12 of 19 shots and 5 of 8 3-pointers 63 percent in both cases during the two-game stop in Memphis, Tennessee, to lift the South Region s No. 1 seed to a record 20th Final Four to face Oregon on Saturday.

When he sets a screen, most of the time (defenders) are hedging long, Jackson said. So whenever he pops, it s hard for them to find him. So that s huge. And then outside of that, because he s a stretch-4 there s much more room inside for the guards to drive. .. So when he s in there, I think that really helps us.

Here s a look at players who could emerge from the shadows this weekend in Phoenix:

GONZAGA: The West Region s top seed has freshman Zach Collins, a 7-foot McDonald s All-American, coming off the bench behind center Przemek Karnowski. Collins is averaging 9.9 points and 5.7 rebounds while shooting 65.4 percent off the bench, and he s doing it in just 17.2 minutes per game entering the semifinals against South Carolina in a matchup of two first-time Final Four programs. OREGON: On a team led by Dillon Brooks and Tyler Dorsey, 6-9 junior Jordan Bell is averaging 10.9 points and 8.6 rebounds. But after the Ducks lost shot-blocker Chris Boucher to a knee injury during the Pac-12 Tournament, Bell proved his ability to dominate inside by finishing with 11 points, 13 rebounds and eight blocks in the Midwest Region final to help the Ducks beat No. 1 seed Kansas for their first Final Four since winning the 1939 NCAA title. SOUTH CAROLINA: Rakym Felder is the New York City point guard coach Frank Martin says he wanted. The 5-foot-10 freshman has started just once all year and plays 14.5 minutes per game, but has had some key production in the NCAA Tournament most notably by tallying 15 points, four rebounds and three assists in the upset of 2-seed Duke in the East Region s second round. Felder is shooting a team-best 43 percent from 3-point range while averaging 5.7 points entering the Gonzaga game.
