Knife robber in Kidderminster betting shop raid

A knife-wielding man stormed into a betting shop today and threatened staff before fleeing with cash.

The man, who was thought to be in his late 40s to mid 50s, burst into William Hill Bookmakers, in Comberton Hill, Kidderminster, brandishing a knife at about 5pm.

He demanded that staff hand over money, before fleeing with the cash.

The man is described as white, between 5ft 4" to 5ft 6" tall, with scruffy greying hair and was wearing a dark coloured zip-up jacket and jeans.

Anyone with information is urged to call police on 101, extension 3585, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
