Police have released CCTV images of a man they want to trace following two ‘terrifying’ knifepoint robberies at a post office in Peterborough, which happened within a few days of each other – and are believed to have been carried out by the same robber.

At about 7.15am on Tuesday, 26 March, a man entered the branch in Exeter Road before threatening staff with a knife and demanding money from the till. He stole £150 in cash and multiple packs of tobacco before leaving the area.

PC Megan Simms, from Cambridgeshire Police said: “These were terrifying experiences for the people working in the post office and we’d urge anyone with information to contact us.”
