Armed raider holds up pub

Police are appealing for witnesses after an armed robbery at a pub in Northamptonshire.

The intruder walked into the Boat House in Braunston just after midnight on Saturday and locked the staff behind the bar before stealing cash.

No one was injured. The man fled as soon as he had the money.

Police would like to speak to anyone who may have seen a man acting suspiciously at around 11.45pm on Saturday, on the canal towpath near the pub or at the bus stop on the main road next to the pub before the robbery.

We would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed this incident or any suspicious activity near the pub or in Braunston late on Saturday night and early on Sunday morning.

– Detective Sergeant Gavin Suttie from Northampton CID.
