AN ARMED robber made off with cash from a bookmaker's in Coulsdon just two weeks after it opened.
The man, armed with a handgun, threatened a member of staff at Coral in Chipstead Valley Road on Friday afternoon (September 5), before stealing cash from the tills and escaping at around 3.50pm.
A police spokesman described the suspect as a black man, approximately 5ft 7ins tall, wearing a black hooded top with Adidas stripes down the arms, grey jogging bottoms and a white mask covering his face.
He said: "Detectives from the Met's Flying Squad are investigating the incident. No arrests have been made at this stage.
"Anyone with information or who witnessed the incident should call police on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
The Coral bookmaker's opened in the town centre on September 15, exactly two weeks before the robbery.
A spokeswoman for Coral declined to comment for "security purposes".
