Knife Attack on Betfred Employee in Lowestoft

A man was attacked with a knife last night as a woman robbed a Lowestoft bookmakers in Suffolk.

The incident happened last night when the offender entered the Betfred shop on London Road North at around 8.25pm.

She asked a member of staff for help with a gambling machine, and when the staff member came out from behind the counter she pulled out a large knife.

As the man went to run away he fell to the floor where he was attacked by the woman with the knife, which caused a deep cut to his face.

Two customers left the shop and one tried to call the police, but a man outside snatched the phone from him.

Back in the shop the woman took some money from the shop and ran off with this man towards Clapham Road South.

The employee who was attacked was first taken to the James Paget Hospital and later transferred to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital.

The police were unable to locate the man or the woman involved in the incident. They are appealing for information which could help identify and locate them.

The woman is described as white, short, of large build and wearing a beige baseball cap, dark coloured hooded top, jeans and trainers.

The man is described as being of oriental appearance in his mid-20s, wearing dark clothing.

A Betfred spokesman said: “The safety of our staff and customers is paramount and we are working with the police.”

The police would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time. If you saw these two people either before or after the robbery, or you recognise them from their descriptions, then get in touch.

Calls should be made to Lowestoft CID on 101 quoting LO/14/5316 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
