POLICE have released chilling CCTV images of three men suspected to have been involved in a robbery at a Westbourne travel agent.

Bath Travel in Poole Road was raided at around 3pm on Friday, April 17, when three men with their faces disguised entered the building and demanded money.

An undisclosed amount of cash was stolen.

No one was injured in the incident.

The suspects left the shop and ran away from the scene toward Nelson Road. It is believed they drove away in a black car, possibly a Volkswagen Golf or something similar.

The first suspect is described wearing a dark coloured hooded top with the hood up, dark coloured tracksuit bottoms and dark trainers. He was carrying a yellow sports bag with JD in white writing and his face was covered by a scarf or bandana.

The second suspect was wearing a dark grey sports jacket with lighter coloured elbow patches, zip and cords, blue jeans and white and blue trainers. He wore green or grey tights over his head and face.

The third suspect wore a blue zip-up tracksuit top with a white logo on the left breast, blue tracksuit bottoms with a white logo on the top of the left thigh area and dark trainers. He wore a blue or grey flat cap and something concealing his face.

All three men wore red gloves with black on the palms.
