Peterborough: Store Robbed At Knifepoint

A Peterborough shop has been robbed at knifepoint.

Cambridgeshire Police say a man walked into Storrington News in Storrington Way at around 9:45am last Tuesday (27 November).

He then got out a knife and threatened a member of staff, ordering him to fill a bag with money.

The robber then filled another bag with cigarettes before running off.

The armed robber is described as white, 19 to 25, and was wearing a blue zip-up hooded top, a blue scarf covering the lower part of his face, black Adidas tracksuit bottoms and black trainers.

Detective Constable Liam Sweeney, who is investigating, said: "This must have been terrifying for the member of staff who was threatened with the knife.

I would urge anyone with any information to call police."

Anyone with any information is asked to call DC Sweeney on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously , on 0800 555111.
