As soon as they are in the lobby, the man in the wheelchair jumps out with a handgun as his colleagues also produce weapons. A fourth man then shows up holding a gun.

A female member of staff is forced to open the safe as gang members stuff cash into their bags. The four men raid the safe and drawers before fleeing the scene.
