An man on a motorcycle threatened staff and stole cash in an armed robbery at Genting’s Casino on Friday.

The man forced his way through the back door of the casino in Skimpot Road at about 5.10pm.

He threatened an employee and made them hand over a substantial amount of cash.

The offender is described as a man wearing a motorcycle helmet, snap on gloves, which were taped at the cuffs, and a black shiny jacket.

He was carrying a rucksack, possibly with a Nike logo.

A short piece of CCTV footage has also been released showing some of the incident in a hope that the clothing worn by the offender may help identify him.

The officer in charge of this investigation, Det Con Tom Hamm, is keen to trace anyone who can help identify the offender or any motorists who saw the motorcyclist leave the scene, perhaps riding erratically.

Det Con Hamm said: “We know the roads in the area were extremely busy at the time the offence happened and it is possible that motorists saw a motorcycle leave the car park of the casino but didn’t take much notice. However, even the smallest amount of information is vital to this investigation and could help identify the man responsible so I would urge members of the public with information to speak to officers, in confidence.”

Call 01582 394498, or Bedfordshire Police on 101, or text information to 07786 200011.
