WORD ON THE STREET

A would-be thief has fled the scene following an attempted bank robbery in Melbourne’s south east.

The staff activated the bank’s security system and the man fled from the scene.

3AW listener Jamie told Nick McCallum police have saturated the area.

“There’s a lot of people still trying to use the handy bank out the front!”

Investigations are ongoing.
