Witnesses sought for Kempston shop robbery

7 Feb 2018

We are seeking witnesses who may have information following a robbery at McColl’s convenience store at the Springfield Centre in Kempston on Saturday, 27 January.

At approximately 10.30pm, a man entered the shop and threatened staff with a hammer before making off with a sum of money.

The offender is described as a white male with brown hair, around 5’7’’, and was wearing a navy blue parka jacket, and a grey tracksuit top and bottoms.

He had covered his face with a red patterned scarf and was also wearing a grey hat.

Sergeant Simon Oldfield, investigating, said: “This was a really disturbing incident where members of staff were subjected to threatening behaviour.

"We will not tolerate incidents where innocent people, simply doing their jobs, are terrorised like this, and would urge anyone in the area at the time who has information to come forward. It could be vital in helping us with our enquiries.”

Anyone with information is asked to call us on 101 quoting BP-27012018-0395. You can also use our online reporting centre.

Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
