A business in Margate High Street has been targeted for the second time where more cash has been reported stolen.

A man was reported to have walked into the building and threatened a member of staff.

He demanded money from a safe, just after midnight on the morning of Monday 18 February.  

Renewed appeal after second robbery at Margate business

It is thought he may have entered through the rear of the premises and left the same way carrying a bag of money.

No one was injured during the incident.

The description of the suspect matches that of the man described during a previous robbery at the same business back in January.

He is described as black, around 5ft 8ins tall and was wearing a balaclava.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Leah Roberts said:

“We believe these robberies are linked and are renewing our appeal for witnesses.

“We are also still seeking the identity of the man in this photo, who may be able to assist with our enquiries.
“Whilst the face is not clear in this image, we hope someone will recognise the clothing, footwear and build of the man and let us know who he is.”
