Masked men threatened to attack a teenage One Stop cashier with a knife unless he handed over cash.

The pair entered the Winston Crescent store between 7am and 7.15am on Sunday (November 8). They threatened the 17-year-old member of staff, saying they had a knife, and took £105 from a till drawer.

The robbers made off on pedal cycles in the direction of the Langney roundabout.

Although the member of staff was shocked by the incident, he was left unhurt.

Both suspects described as white males. One was about 5’10”, slim, wearing a waist length green or brown buttoned up coat, and a black knitted flat cap.

The other suspect was described as stocky and was wearing a black peaked baseball cap with the word ‘Boy’ written across the front.

Detective Constable Paul Gray said, “If you were in the area at the time of the robbery and saw anything that can assist with the investigation, please contact us via 101@sussex.pnn.police.ukor call 101, quoting serial 292 of 08/11.

“You can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
