Diners urged to help police after restaurant robbery
3:32pm Friday 8th June 2012 in Cotswolds
DINERS who ate at The Spice Room in Moreton last night are being urged to contact police as they may be able to help with a robbery investigation.
At about 9pm a man walked into the restaurant, on Oxford Street, carrying a knife and threatened a member of staff, telling them to hand over money from the till.
Staff gave the man £10 and he left the restaurant.
The man was described as white, of medium build and around 5ft 4” tall. He was thought to be in his early 20s.
He was wearing a cream hooded top, a cream ‘beanie’ style hat, jeans and had a white scarf covering his face. No one was injured in the incident.
Inspector Jon Smith said: “The incident was reported to police at about 10pm and its thought that diners may have left the restaurant in between the incident taking place and it being reported to us.
“It’s really important that anyone who was in the restaurant at around 9pm contact us, as they may have vital information that could help our investigation.”
Diners, or anyone else with any information about the incident, should call Gloucestershire Police on 101, quoting incident number 400 of June 7.
Information can also be given anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via crimestoppers-uk.org. You may receive a reward if someone is arrested and charged.
