WORKERS at a pizza parlour were forced to hand over cash after they were held up by a knife-wielding robber.

Police are hunting the robber who walked into Dominos Pizza in Apple Acre Road, Haverhill, at about 11.45pm last night.

The raider initially walked into the takeaway and asked staff organise a taxi for him.

A member of staff spoke to the man, and a woman he was with, to try to arrange this.

But moments later, after the member of staff returned to the pizza shop, the man then walked into Dominos on his own, produced a knife and demanded that staff hand over cash. A quantity of money was handed over and the man ran out of the premises.
