Bookies Raided in Englefield Green

Police are appealing for witnesses after it has emerged that the Bedfred bookmakers in Englefield Green was raided by ‘hammer wielding robbers’.

It is reported that on Tuesday 4th March at around 7.45pm, two men entered the shop on St Jude’s Road, and threatened the Betfred employee with hammers, demanding cash from the till. The terrified employee proceeded to hand over the contents of the till, and the two men left shortly after.

Surrey Police have released descriptions of the two men who are believed to be in their late 20s to early thirties, one of whom was wearing a balaclava and hooded parka jacket, whilst the other was in a grey hooded tracksuit with a blue scarf masking his face.

The Police urge anyone who believes they may have more information on this incident, to contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
