Armed robbers threaten travel agent staff in Hythe
Two armed robbers fled with a
"considerable amount" of cash after threatening travel agency staff
The men demanded cash at gunpoint at the store in High Street,
Hythe, at around 11.40am.
Both raiders, described as black, then fled the shop with the
cash, travelling along Theatre Street towards Prospect Road, and
were last seen in the area of the supermarket.
Police are not ruling out a connection to a similar robbery
earlier this week at the Thomas Cook travel agent's in
They have warned people not to approach the men, but are
particularly keen to speak to anyone waiting for a taxi outside the
supermarket between 11am and noon, or anyone who visited the travel
agents at the time of the attack.
