A man armed with a knife - with a pair of tights over his head - has robbed a Londis convenience store in a Suffolk town.

Police were called at around 5.45pm today, Sunday, March 10, to reports that a man had walked into the store, in Gloucester Road, Haverhill, with a ‘small knife’, making off with a quantity of cash from the till.

According to a spokesman for Suffolk police, the suspect then fled the scene.

He said: “It is early days but an investigation has commenced.

“Thankfully, nobody has been injured in the incident.

“The suspect was a white male, between 20 and 30 years old and had facial hair.

“He was wearing a baseball cap, black tracksuit bottoms and white trainers.

“He had a pair of tights over his head when the robbery took place.”

Police are appealing for witnesses to get in touch.
