Staff at an Essex betting shop were threatened with a knife during a robbery yesterday.
A man went into the Coral bookies in Great Square, Braintree, around 1.30pm on bank holiday Monday and demanded money from the till.
After threatening staff with a knife, he then made off with a three-figure sum of cash.
The man has been described as white, in his mid-to-late 20s, and standing around 5ft 8in tall.
He had ginger facial hair and wore a grey hooded top with a Nike logo. He had a green ‘SPAR’ carrier bag.
