Police are trying to find people who saw a violent robbery at a Northampton branch of KFC.

A charity tin was stolen from the Abington Street restaurant late on Friday 2 August 2013.

Northamptonshire Police say four men entered the restaurant at some time between 10.30pm and 11pm.  Two of the men began to argue with staff about their order, they became aggressive and abusive and one of the men threw a drink at staff.

Both men then climbed over the counter and went into the kitchen where a member of staff was assaulted.

The staff member ran out of the restaurant and was initially followed by the men who then returned to the restaurant, climbed back over the counter and demanded money.

A charity tin was then stolen from the till and one of the men threw a traffic cone across the restaurant.

One of the men is described as white, aged 20-25, 5ft 6ins to 5ft 8ins of slim build. He had short blond hair and was wearing a white tee-shirt, dark bottoms and had a large black tattoo on his left forearm.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Northamptonshire Police on the non-emergency number 101.
