Thetford: Man Wearing Tea-Towel Robs Petrol Station
A man wearing a tea-towel over his face has robbed a filling station after threatening the staff with a knife in Thetford.
Officers were called to the Jet petrol station on Bury Road at about 8.23pm last night after reports a man with a knife had demanded money from a cashier.
The offender fled the scene on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash taken from the till.
He is described as white, in his 30s, about five foot six inches tall, with dark hair and was wearing a chequered tea towel or similar over his face. It is thought he was also wearing dark coloured trousers and a dark coloured jacket and had with him a carrier bag.
The police helicopter was deployed to assist in the search for the offender.
The investigation is at an early stage, and no-one was injured during the incident.
Enquiries continue and officers are keen to hear from anyone with any information relating to the robbery. Witnesses should contact Norfolk Constabulary on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
