Police release CCTV image after betting shop staff are robbed at knife point
Police have released a CCTV image after staff in a north Watford betting shop were robbed at knife point.
Officers said on Wednesday January 16 at around 4.55pm a man in a helmet entered Coral Racing in Courtlands Drive, approached the counter, pulled out a knife and demanded a member of staff hand over money.
The suspect then put the money in a plastic bag before making off on a moped in the direction of Hempstead Road.
Investigator Abigail Bianco of Watford Police Station said: “I am appealing to anyone who may have witnessed this offence to contact me with information.
“The offender has disguised his face with a crash helmet and I would particularly like to appeal to anyone who may recognise the helmet, as it has distinctive markings, to also make contact.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Investigator Abigail Bianco via the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference number C4/13/119.
Alternatively Crimestoppers can be called anonymously on 0800 555 111.
