Wearing a helmet, he entered the bank on Phattanakarn Road shortly after noon, walked over to the first counter and held out a plastic bag, demanding the teller fill it with cash. However, she refused.
He then walked over to the next counter and claimed he had an explosive, so the teller agreed to hand over the Bt105,320 she had.

Police are checking all CCTV cameras in the area to work out his escape route.
