Kent Police is appealing for witnesses to a robbery by two teenagers at the Tesco Express store in Hereson Road, Ramsgate, this morning (December 12).
Officers were called to the store at 8.30am after two men threatened staff with a knife and demanded they hand over cash and cigarettes.
Detective Sergeant Brian Doughty said: “No-one was injured although the staff were understandably shaken by what happened.
“The shop was busy at the time and we are asking anyone who saw the incident or the two offenders either before or afterwards to contact us.”
The offenders are described as white and around 16 or 17 years old. One was wearing a black coat with a hood, dark trousers and dark shoes. The other was wearing a thick grey hooded top with the hood up, dark trousers and black trainers.
They made off along an alleyway towards Cecilia Road.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Kent Police on 01843 222289 or Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 quoting reference number 12-0212.
I saw young lads that might have been these with a third lad in a royal blue anorak top yesterday morning (Monday) They were on my bus then got off and drifted through the town. I later saw them again and they were walking up the hill towards the Kwikfit garage laughing about something as if they have just nicked something somewhere and got away with it. I would say they were 15/16, thin and not the brightest. Also one of them kept making noises as if he had tourettes.
