Detectives are seeking witnesses and information to an alleged robbery at a bakery on Belmont Road, Ramsgate early this morning.
A man wearing a balaclava went into Mr. Pastry just before 8am, pointed what appeared to be a silver children’s toy pistol at the 55-year-old woman behind the counter and demanded cash.
The woman handed over a small amount of cash after which the man ran out of the shop and along Belmont Road toward the high street.
The woman was not hurt during the incident.
The man is described as being of slight build, about 5ft 3in-4in tall. He wore a black balaclava, a dark jumper with small logo on the front, grey jogging bottoms and dark woolly gloves.
Anyone who saw the man or who knows his identity is asked to contact Det Sgt Claire Munday at Margate Police Station (01843) 222 192.
