An armed robber carried out a terrifying raid at a Luton casino on Tuesday.

The shocking incident happened at around 6pm at the Casino Club in Skimpot Road, on August 25.

A man dressed in dark clothing, gloves, and a black motorbike helmet stormed into the casino and threatened staff before stealing cash.

The man then left through the smoking area at the back of the casino.

Detective Sergeant Emma Langwith said: “We’re appealing for anyone who may have witnessed a man in a motorcycle helmet leave the casino, or in the vicinity of the casino, at around the time of the robbery.

“Robberies are completely unacceptable, especially where threats are involved, and we are doing everything we can to find the person responsible. I’d urge anyone who thinks they may be able to help us to contact us immediately.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact DS Langwith on 101, text 07786 200 011, or call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
