A MALE SHOP WORKER IN HIS 70'S was punched and kicked during a robbery in Peterborough on Saturday May 17th.
The robbery with violence was around 2.30pm at The Chocolate Box, in Fletton Avenue. The victim, who is in his 70s and works at the shop, was putting money in the till when a male came in and punched him.
The victim fought back, but he was repeatedly punched and kicked and the thug made off with some cash.
The robber is described as white, aged 25 to 30, about 5'8", clean shaven with a thin face. He was wearing a khaki green hat and a dark top or lightweight jacket.
Detective Constable Sarah Morley said: "This was a nasty robbery which left the victim extremely shocked and with minor injuries.
"There would have been a number of people in the area at the time of the robbery and I would urge anyone with information to contact police.
"I'm particularly keen to speak to the driver of a red Vauxhall Corsa who pulled up outside the shop as I believe they would have seen the offender enter and leave."
Anyone with information should contact DC Morley on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
