A ROBBER threatened shop staff with a bladed weapon before making off with the contents of the till.

The man – described as white, stocky and around 6ft – threatened staff at the Co-Op shop on Cressida Drive in Warwick and demanded the contents of the till, before making off with cash.

Leamington Det Cons Imran Ghouri said: “I’d like to reassure residents that incidents like this are rare in the area and thankfully nobody was injured.

“Officers are investigating a number of lines of enquiry to identify the offender.

“We are keen to identify and speak with the individual in the CCTV images, who is reported to have left the area on a white bike, as we believe they were in the area at the time and may have important information that could help investigations.”

Call police on 101 or ring 0800 555 111 to speak to Crimestoppers anonymously.
