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.
The men are described as white, with English accents, aged between 21 and 40. 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.
Detective Sergeant Chris Tatum-Horsfield said:
"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."
Anyone with information is asked to call DS Tatum-Horsfield on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555 111
