6:19pm Thursday 3rd October 2013 in News
A KNIFE-wielding robber stole cigarettes after threatening staff at Jaywick post office.
The man, wearing a black balaclava, cycled off towards the Sheldrake pub after targeting the Beach Way post office just before 2.30pm yesterday. Nobody was injured.
The attacker was white, slim, in his 20s and around 5ft 10ins tall. He was wearing a grey hoodie and dark tracksuit bottoms.
Investigating Officer, Ds Tim Coyles, said: "We’re looking to speak with anyone who may know this man from the description provided or who saw him cycle off on a white mountain bike towards the nearby pub and then beyond.
“At this stage, we’re unsure when the balaclava was put on and then taken off.”
Anyone with information should contact detectives at Clacton police station on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
