Teenaged robbers hit Marylebone casino
TEENAGE robbers got away with loaded cash box in a violent daylight robbery at a Marylebone casino.
The thieves struck after pulling up in a silver two-seater BMW at the front of the Grosvenor Victoria casino on Harrowby Road at around 3.25pm on Tuesday.
One of the two-man gang, who were said to be as young as 16 or 17 years old, jumped out of the car and pounced on the security guard just about to deliver a box full of cash.
One man, who saw the incident but asked not to be named, said: “A BMW pulled up in the middle of the road with three English guys.
“Then the security guard arrived. He wanted to go inside the casino but one of the guys in the car ran up to him and starting kicking him. He was carrying a box and it just rolled into the road.
