At approximately 7.45am, a male entered a shop and demanded money and cigarettes from a female worker.

He made off with a sum of money and headed up North Street through the subway at the train station and into the direction of the Sunnylands estate on a black bicycle.

The male is described as being approximately 5’8” tall, of slight build and was wearing a green scarf over his face, a black woollen hat and gloves and a grey tracksuit.
