Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following a robbery in Chalfont St Giles where Co-Op staff were threatened by masked offenders with scissors.

At 9:06pm on Friday, September 20, two masked men entered The Co-Op in Chalfont St Giles and threatened a member of staff with scissors.

They then jumped over the counter, stealing cigarettes and lottery tickets and forcing open the tills to steal cash.

The two men then left the shop and a third individual was waiting in a dark coloured hatchback of which they made their escape.

The first of the men who entered the shop is described as having a slim build and was wearing a grey hooded top, black tracksuit bottoms and red gloves. He was wearing a black mask and was carrying a black recycling box.

The second man is described as having a slim build and was wearing a green hooded top with a black jacket over the top, grey jogging bottoms and black gloves. He was also carrying a black bag.

The third individual waiting in the vehicle was also wearing a face covering.

No one was injured during the incident.

Investigating officer, DC Lucie Roberts from Aylesbury Police Station said: “This is an appeal for any witnesses to the incident who were in the area at that time, however we are specifically wanting to identify a man who entered the store as the offenders were fleeing with the stolen items.  He turned to watch the offenders get into a vehicle, and then entered the store.  We are asking him to get in touch as he may be able to provide more detail on the offender’s vehicle.

“If you saw or heard anything relating to this incident, please get in touch with police by calling 101, or reporting online and quoting reference 43190291897.

“Reports can also be made to independent charity Crimestoppers for 100 per cent anonymity by calling 0800 555 111.”
