A MAN was robbed at the entrance of a post office as he arrived to pay in business takings.

The 26-year-old had arrived at the Kesgrave post office in Penzance Road at just before 10am today when he stopped to let an older man come out the door.

At the same time a man brushed past him and grabbed his cash bag, running away with it down Oregon Road.
