A man robbed Meads Bakery in Bolton Road armed with a hand gun which he pointed at an employee.
The incident happened on October 20 at about 8.50pm when a man wearing a balaclava entered the bakery through the shutters.
He took the victim’s phone and cigarettes and demanded cash, but when the victim said he didn’t have any cash the robber went to an office and began searching a desk.
The employee managed to escape from the premises and when he returned later he saw his yellow pedal cycle had also been taken.
Det Con Mandy Godfree is keen to speak to anyone who saw anything suspicious or who knows someone who has acquired a yellow pedal cycle in the last week.
Call Det Con Godfree in confidence on 01582 394443, or Bedfordshire Police, on 101, or text information to 07786 200011.
