On Tuesday 9th October, a report of an armed robbery was yet again called into South Yorkshire Police, this time at a pizza takeaway.
Police were alerted to an armed robbery at Dinnington’s Domino’s pizza on Laughton Road early last week.
It was at around 9:30 pm, that the attempted robbery occurred. The man entered Dominos and ordered staff to handover the takeaway’s cash, before then threatening them with a bladed weapon.
The takeaway staff confronted the offender and he subsequently fled, leaving empty-handed.
This incidence comes not long after another armed robbery in Dinnington. The Salvation Army Charity shop again on Laughton Road was also robbed in a callous attack earlier last week.
It was also only 3 years ago that a shopkeeper from Dinnington was stabbed in the head and body after two men invaded his convenience store.
Luckily, on this occurrence, nobody was injured in the ordeal.
A full investigation into the robbery has now been launched. Local authorities are currently inspecting CCTV from the area of the incident and are calling upon any witnesses for information.
With such an increase in armed robberies in the area, it is crucial to have the correct protection in place from armed robbers for your staff members and premises.
