Wiltshire Police is appealing for witnesses after a robbery at Ladbrokes, Clive Parade, Swindon on Tuesday 19 September 2017. 

At just after 5pm, an unknown male entered the address and demanded money from a member of staff behind the counter.   The male shop worker then handed over £550 from the till. 

The suspect then left the store towards the rear alleyway of the row of shops. 

Although shaken the member of staff was not injured.

Det Con Tom Turner said:  "If you recognise the clothing this person is wearing or perhaps the person themselves, please come forward. 
"This part of town would have been very busy at this time of the afternoon - someone must have seen something. 
"Also, if you heard or saw anything suspicious in this area, at this time, please contact us." 

If you can help with our enquiries please contact DC Tom Turner at Swindon CID on 101 or anonymously, via Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111.
