POLICE have appealed for information after a knife-wielding man got away with a shop's till on Monday night.

The man entered Bargain Booze on Station Road, Thurnscoe, carrying the blade and demanded money from staff.

He left the shop with its till at around 9pm and was last seen running down John Street.

He is described as white, in his late 20s, of slim build, around 5ft 7ins tall and he spoke with a local accent.

He was wearing a light grey hooded top with the hood up, navy blue jogging bottoms and a black scarf around the lower half of his face and nose.

It's Thurnscoe's second armed robbery in as many weeks, after a convenience store in Lorne Road was targeted by a man with a firearm.

Witnesses or anyone with information is asked to call South Yorkshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 1024 of August 11.

well, actually it is, if there were enough decent paying jobs going about and people could actually afford stuff like food and drink then i would agree with you. however, being that this town is a sh*thole and a disgrace to the world, i disagree, crap paid jobs are scarce, people have no cash for basic living, so turning to crime is justified in my eyes, anyone in their right mind would rob someone if it meant they could feed their family. anyone who says they wouldn't steal to support their family is either a liar or a tory.

Aiden have u been to the job centres? are you looking online for jobs? There are jobs out there and a lot of help from such as a4e helping with ur cv to find a job some of us work 24/7 to make ends meet and only just manage to keep food on the table but if things got really hard I wouldn't turn to crime threatening innocent people who are just trying to earn a living. It's pathetic narrow minded people like u that makes this town into a sh**hole as u called it.
