Copycat robbery at takeaway

A FAST food outlet in Benson has been targeted by an armed robber for the second time in a month.

Police were called to McDonald’s in Oxford Road at about 3am on Wednesday last week after a man forced his way inside and threatened staff with a hammer.

He forced staff to hand over money from the tills before running off towards Benson village.

The robbery follows an incident on April 1 in which a masked man threatened staff with a bat before taking £1,985.

Police say they are not ruling out a link between the robberies and are appealing for information about the latest incident.
