A reward of up to £10,000 is being offered for information after a Preston bookmakers was targeted by robbers twice within 48 hours.

Both offences took place at William Hill on Ribbleton Lane when a man has entered the shop brandishing a knife and demanding money. During both robberies he escaped with cash from the till.

The first offence took place around 9.20pm on Saturday 11th January when around £300 was stolen and the second offence then took place around 9.45pm on Monday 13th January when around £200 was taken.

Police are linking the offences and believe the same man could be responsible.

Detective Sergeant Martin Pearson from Preston CID said: “These are serious offences and I would appeal to anybody that has any information about either of these robberies to come forward and contact Lancashire Police on 101.

“Fortunately nobody was injured and owing to William Hill’s internal security systems the offenders were only able to access a relatively small amount of cash that had been taken during the day. No other money was available.

“I would ask people to take a look at the image of the man pictured in the CCTV from the offence on 11th January and to call police if they are able to identify him.”

The offender is described as male and was wearing black clothing with a scarf covering his mouth. He spoke with a local accent.

William Hill is offering a reward of up to £10,000 for any information which leads to the arrest and conviction of the man responsible.
