Fresh appeals for help
8:46am 18th June 2010
A week on and Detectives investigating a robbery in York are re-appealing for witnesses to come forward.
The incident happened around 8.15pm on Friday 11 June 2010 when a man with a knife threatened staff at Makdonaldson’s store on Lawrence Street, before stealing hundreds of pounds in cash.
The suspect, who made off along Hull Road in the direction of Melrosegate, is described as white, aged in his 40s, clean shaven with short grey hair, a thin face and a slim build. He was wearing blue jeans, a knee-length blue padded jacket and a green cap.
Police are currently reviewing CCTV footage in the area in an effort to identify the offender.
DC Adam Heatlie, of York CID, said: “This was a particularly unpleasant experience for the victim who is understandably shaken by the incident.
“We are conducting detailed enquiries to try and establish the identity of the offender and believe that members of the public may have vital information that could help the investigation.
“I am particularly appealing for anyone who visited the shop prior to the incident to get in touch, as they may have seen the suspect outside the store before the robbery took place.
