Armed robbery at Cheltenham bookmakers


Police are appealing for witnesses following an incident at Paddy Power, High Street, Cheltenham.

On 26 April at 9.45pm a masked man went into the bookmakers carrying a knife.  The member of staff managed to lock himself into a back room as the man jumped over the counter and broke into two of the tills.

The offender was wearing a balaclava, gloves and a three-quarter length blue coat with a hood.  He left the shop walking in the direction of New Look.  We are hoping someone may recognise him by the clothes he is wearing.

If anyone has any information that can help us with our enquiries or if you can identify the man in the pictures please call 101 quoting incident number 476 of 26 April.
