TWO men armed with a crowbar and a baseball bat stole a cash register after threatening staff at the post office at Parson Drove, Wisbech last night.
One of the raiders was injured on the arm when a member of staff grabbed the crowbar and hit him.
The robbery took place between 4.50 and 4.55 pm. The two raiders, wearing hoods and scarves to disguise their faces, took the cash register and made off in a blue 4x4 vehicle which was later found abandoned in the river at Honey Hill Road, Gorefield near Wisbech.
Detective Sergeant Matt Swash, of Fenland Serious Crime Team, the man leading the hunt for the two robbers, today appealed for witnesses.
