– Det Sgt Jim Holmes, Thames Valley Police
The Co-op next door to the bookmakers was just closing at the time of the incident and I am keen to speak to anyone who saw a man hanging around outside the shops or running away from the shop at the time of the robbery.
The offender is about 6ft, and was wearing black clothing and had his face covered. He turned left after leaving the shop.
Anyone with any information should contact Det Sgt Homes via the 24-hour Police Enquiry Centre on 101. If you don't want to speak directly to the police, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org.
Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after a knife-point robbery in Banbury last night. Just before 10pm, a man entered Corals bookmakers in the Ruscote Arcade, went up to the counter, and threatened the staff member with a knife, demanding cash from the till.
The assistant opened the till and handed over an undisclosed amount of cash, and the man ran out of the shop.
The assistant was not injured but he was left shaken and upset.
