DETECTIVES have launched an investigation after a masked raider walked into an Ipswich newsagent demanding cash.
The incident happened at Chantry News in Hawthorn Drive at around 5.45am, but when the staff refused his demands, the robber grabbed some cigarettes and fled. He was last seen heading in the direction of Sheldrake Drive.
A woman working at the shop, who did not wish to be named, said the masked raider had confronted the manager who was left “shaken” by the incident. “The door wasn't locked because people are coming in anyway with deliveries”, she said.
The robber is described as black, 6ft tall, and was wearing a black coat and jeans.
No weapons were used in the raid and no-one was hurt.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 01473 613500 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
