An investigation has been launched after a man held a syringe to the throat of a customer and demanded money, during a robbery in Peterborough.

It happened at 7.25pm on Friday (6 July) at Coral bookmakers in the Westwood Centre.

Two men entered the shop with their hoods pulled up and one of them held a syringe to the throat of a customer, whilst the other demanded money from the cashier.

The pair ran off with more than £550 in cash.

Detective Constable Mark Clapham said: “Thankfully nobody was seriously injured during this violent incident, although the staff and customers involved have been left understandably shaken.

“The two men pictured may have stood out as they were wearing hooded jumpers on a warm summer evening.”
