Two masked men armed with a machete and a crowbar threatened guards during a cash-in-transit robbery, Lancashire Police have said.
The robbery took place when two G4S guards were carrying a cashbox to the Santander Bank on Clifton Street, Lytham, at about 19:00 GMT on Tuesday.
The armed men forced the guards to open the cashbox before escaping with an undisclosed amount of money.
They then fled the scene in a silver Skoda Octavia, police said.
The car, which had false number plates, is believed to have been stolen from the Greater Manchester area and was later recovered in an alleyway.
