Detectives from the MPS Flying Squad are appealing for information about the robbery of Ladbrokes on Blackstock Road, Islington earlier this month.

At approximately 2210hrs on Monday, 20 October, police were called to a report that two masked men entered Ladbrokes on Blackstock Road, N4 where a female cashier in her 20s was on her own.

They demanded cash from the woman, who was stood behind the counter. In fear for her life, she handed over money from the till to them.

The men then ran out of the shop in an unknown direction.

Suspect one is described as looking about 6ft tall, and wearing a red Arsenal football top over a dark hooded top.

Suspect two is described as looking about 5ft 11in tall, and wearing a dark hooded top and dark sports shorts over dark leggings.

It is not known what they had masked their faces with, only that the masking was dark.

Anyone with information is asked to call investigating officer DC Andy Terry, of the Flying Squad, on 020 8345 4226 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
