Staff threatened with hammer in robbery

Staff at a chip shop in Furness Vale were threatened with a hammer during a robbery.  

Police are now appealing for information after a man entered the Chip Box, on the A6 Buxton Road, on Wednesday (28 July) at 4.15pm and threatened staff before demanding money from the till.  

Staff then handed the man a quantity of cash and he left the shop. 

The man is described as white and of stocky build. He was wearing a white face covering and long-sleeved grey and blue top, with black knee length shorts, and trainers. 

He is understood to have left the shop in a white Vauxhall Vivaro van and driven off in the direction of Whaley Bridge.  

Anyone who recognises the description of the man, or who has information that may assist with officers' enquiries should contact Detective Constable Thomas Sheridan, quoting reference number 21*423317.
