We are appealing for witnesses following a knifepoint robbery at a bakery in New Haw on Saturday (7 December).
An investigation is underway following the robbery, which took place at Heaters Bakery on Woodham Lane at approximately 4.45pm. A suspect walked into the bakery with a knife and demanded money. He then left on foot in the direction of the Broadway with approximately £100 in cash. No-one was injured, although staff were left shaken as a result of the incident. The man was described as in his 60s or 70s, white, 5 ft 8 tall, of a medium build, with a short grey beard. He spoke with a local accent. At the time of the incident he was wearing a black beanie hat, a black jacket which was done up, and black jeans.
