HUNTINGDON — Authorities in Cambridgeshire are appealing for the public’s help in locating two men responsible for an armed robbery last month.

The robbery occurred shortly before 8 a.m. on Jan. 29. Two staff members of a Co-op store on Sallowbush Road were robbed at gunpoint as they took out the trash, according to a Cambridgeshire Constabulary press release.

The two men, described only as dressed in black, forced their way into the business and demanded that a safe be opened. They made off with a substantial but undisclosed amount of cash and several electricity meter cards, authorities said.

Anyone with information about the crime is urged to contact D.C. Hewson at 0845 456 4564 or Crimestoppers at 0800 555 111.

Possible witnesses to school break-in sought

EATON SOCON — Authorities are searching for witnesses following a break-in at the Crosshall Infant School on Feb. 6.

The incident occurred about 11:15 p.m. when an intruder entered the building by forcing a window open, according to a Cambridgeshire Constabulary news release. The intruder later left through a door, the news release said. Nothing was reported to have been stolen.

“The school is overlooked by nearby houses, so I would ask residents to consider whether they saw anything suspicious on Monday night, and if so, contact police,” Police Constable Gary Wort said.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Wort at 0845 456 4564 or Crimestoppers at 0800 555 111.
