Police have launched a CCTV appeal after a man entered a McColls post office in Royston last month, and allegedly threatened staff with a knife.
Officers have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to identify, as they believe he may be able to assist with the investigation.
On Saturday, April 4, at around 5.30pm, a man entered McColls post office in Queens Road, where it was alleged he threatened a member of staff with a knife and demanded they hand over money from the tills.
The offender then fled the scene with around £300 in cash.
PC Nathalia Smith said: “Understandably, this incident left the victim incredibly shaken up. If you recognise the man pictured, please get in contact with me as soon as possible.
