Man threatened in Banbury supermarket knife robbery
A man has been threatened with a knife during a robbery at a supermarket in Oxfordshire.
The member of staff at Co-op in Rotary Way, Banbury, was approached by two men wearing woollen hats and balaclavas and threatened with a knife at the till.
The employee handed over several hundred pounds in cash during the raid on Monday evening.
The two men rode off on a single bicycle. Thames Valley Police are appealing for witnesses.
One of the men was described as stocky, about 5ft 9in tall and aged about 19 or 20. He was wearing a black jacket with an orange coloured motif on the front.
The other man was described as skinny and about 6ft tall. He was wearing a dark jacket with a white stripe over the right shoulder.
Both men are thought to have been wearing plastic bin liners over their footwear.
The knife was described as silver with a 4in to 5in (10cm-12.5cm) blade.
The bicycle was thought to have been either orange or red.
