TUI staff threatened with knife during robbery

Terrified staff at a Staffordshire travel agency were forced to hand over the contents of a safe after being confronted with a knife-wielding robber.

The masked bandit - carrying a grey Prada bag - entered the Litchfield TUI agency on Tuesday afternoon before threatening staff. 

No one was hurt.

Detectives released CCTV images of the robber and are appealing for witnesses.

The man is described as black, tall, skinny, wearing a mask and gloves and carrying a grey Prada bag and a kitchen knife.

Staffordshire police said in a statement: "Staff were made to open the safe inside the store. The male escaped on foot by running up Tamworth Street and onto Lombard Street in the direction of Stowe Street at about 4.15pm.

"Thankfully no staff were harmed.

"Anyone who heard or saw anything suspicious, saw the fleeing suspect or who has CCTV footage that may have captured anything should message Staffordshire Police on Facebook or Twitter quoting incident number 441 of 15 December, call 101 or alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
