A thug walked into a convenience store in Wembley on Saturday threatening the shop assistant with a knife before leaving with cash from the till and a mobile phone.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the robbery at Magazinul Bucharest din Wembley, on Wembley Hill at 5.50pm on Saturday afternoon.

A customer who was entering the store as the thief was leaving chased him as he ran off towards Wembley Triangle then onto Harrow Road, where he lost sight of him, the police said.

The suspect is described as white, approximately 30 years old and has facial hair. He has a stocky build and was wearing a dark hooded top with a baseball cap beneath the hood, a white jumper and jeans. He spoke with a European accent.

No arrests have been made.
