CCTV images of an armed robbery at the Ginton McDonalds

Images of a masked gang who carried out a terrifying raid on a fast food restaurant armed with knives have been released by police.

The gang of three men, all wearing balaclavas and two in distinctive camouflage onesies, forced their way into the McDonald’s branch in Lincoln Road, Glinton, after it had closed just before midnight on December 22, last year.

Once the gang had forced their way into the store, one of the raiders took out a knife and threatened staff before demanding money.

The intruders then fled with an amount of cash and got away in a car owned by a staff member, which was later found abandoned in old Lincoln Road, Glinton.

While none of the staff suffered injuries in the incident, they were shaken by the experience.

Now police have released the images of the men, who were wearing distinctive disguises, in an attempt to bring them to justice.

Two were dressed in camouflage ‘onesies’ and the other had a navy gilet with a grey hooded top.

Dc Audrey Campbell said: “There were a number of people in the area at the time of the incident and I would urge anyone who witnessed the robbery to get in touch.

“I’m also keen to hear from anyone who recognises the three men or have any information about the clothing they wore.”

A spokesman for McDonald’s said they were pleased the police had launched the new appeal.

The spokesman said: “We can confirm an armed robbery took place at the McDonald’s restaurant on Lincoln Road in Glinton late in the evening of 22nd December.

“We continue to offer our full support to those staff members affected by the shock of the incident and are co-operating fully with the police in their enquiries.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Cambridgeshire police on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
