Detectives are appealing for witnesses and information following a knifepoint robbery at a Sainsbury’s store in Worksop.

A man, who was wearing a face covering, entered the store in Newcastle Avenue and approached the tills where two members of staff were cashing up. He then produced a large knife and demanded the staff to open the tills.

The man fled the store on foot with a quantity of cash. Staff were left very shaken but no-one was hurt.

The robbery happened just after 10pm yesterday (Tuesday 9 October 2018).

The offender is white, about 5ft 5ins tall and of average build.

Our enquiries are ongoing and we’re carrying out extra patrols in the area to provide reassurance to the public while our investigation continues.

We’re appealing for anyone with any information to call us on 101, quoting incident number 963 of 9 October 2018, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
