One of Cambridgeshire's oddest traditions gets under way this morning...
Armed Robbery At Luton Shop
A store worker has been threatened with a gun during an armed robbery in Luton.
Two men went into the convenience store in Blundell Road between 11.14pm and 11.19pm and threatened the 25 year old shop assistant with a gun.
The victim was forced to hand over cash as one of the offenders took bottles of alcohol from the shelves.
The robbers left the scene on foot.
The first was described as a white man, 5'10" to 6' tall with an average build.
He wore a light grey hooded top, towelling jogging bottoms, black training shoes and black gloves which had a red motif on the back. He also wore a light grey and blue bandana over his face.
The second was a white or Asian man, 5'9" to 5'11" tall, wearing a hooded top which was light blue at the top and dark blue at the bottom, together with dark jogging bottoms and black training shoes.
He also wore a light grey or white dust mask over his face and was carrying a brown and black bag, possibly a back pack.
PC Ben Stone would like to urge anyone who saw the incident or anyone who may information relating to the identity of the offenders to contact the police.
PC Stone said: "Luckily the victim was left unharmed but this was a frightening experience for him.
Bedfordshire Police continues to crackdown on those who use weapons and I would urge anyone who saw the incident or can help identify those involved to come forward and help bring these criminals to justice."
