A knifepoint robbery in Sidcup which saw cash and an Iphone stolen from a Crayford Dog Track bookmaker has led to a police appeal.

The 51-year-old victim was driven home from the Stadium Road track by his wife to their home at around 10.30pm on Saturday, March 9.

As they arrived at their property they were approached by two white men. One of the suspects held a knife to the victim’s neck and demanded the bag with the money, claiming they were told he would have a bag of cash.

There was a third man present during the robbery.

The suspects made off in a car. All three are described as being white and in their 20s.

One had dark hair and was wearing a white tracksuit top. Another was wearing a dark hooded top and had facial hair while the last had a long face and prominent teeth, while being dressed in a burgundy-coloured hooded top.

Anyone with information should call police on 0207 232 6530 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
