Police appeal after armed robbery at Queensferry Pizza Hut

NORTH Wales Police is appealing for witnesses and information after an armed robbery at Pizza Hut in Queensferry.

Detective Sergeant Kevin Bowden said three men wearing balaclavas – one carrying a machete – entered the premises in Chester Road West at about 10.30pm on Thursday (January 27), locked two members of staff in a back room and stole cash.

DS Bowden said a staff member was hit by one of the offenders, but is not thought to have sustained an injury.

The offenders were all wearing black clothing. One is of slim build, about 5ft 10in, while the second and third are of medium build and about 5ft 7in.

One of the men was in possession of the machete, which was used to threaten staff.

DS Bowden said: “We would like to reassure the public North Wales Police is investigating this offence robustly and will continue to do so until the perpetrators are brought to justice.

“We are appealing to anyone who has information in connection with this incident and to any person who was in the area at the time and may have seen anything suspicious to contact us immediately.”

Anyone with information should contact North Wales Police on 101 (if in Wales), 0845 6071001 (Welsh language line) or 0845 6071002 (English language line).
