Robbers Raid Bookies With Machete

Two men have raided a bookies in Cambridge with a machete.

Police say they forced the front door open of the betting shop in Cherry Hinton Road yesterday (May 12) at about 9.30pm, before demanding money from a member of staff, and left via the front door with approximately £900 cash.

One was wearing a green coat with light fur around the hood, light trousers, blue latex gloves and a black scarf covering his mouth. The other was in a grey hooded top, black trousers and trainers and had black material tied round the lower half of his face.

"While the member of staff working at the time wasn't injured, he has been left understandably shaken by this incident.  I would urge anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen something to contact me urgently."
