An armed robber threatened staff and made off with cash during a raid at a Dearne betting shop.

The masked raider threatened terrified staff with a knife at Betfred on Barnsley Road, Goldthorpe, and demanded they hand over money.

Police describe the suspect as a white man, about six feet tall, of medium or stocky build, and with his face covered with a balaclava.

Officers are trying to trace a dark coloured Audi A4 seen near the bookmakers shortly before the raid took place at 8.50pm on Tuesday, March 18.

Detectives investigating said it is unclear at this stage if the suspect ran off or fled the scene in a vehicle.

A spokeswoman for South Yorkshire Police said: “Detectives are keen to hear from anyone who knows something about the vehicle.

“Anyone with information is urged to call South Yorkshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 1022 of 18 March.

“Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
