Armed robbery at Bradford fish and chippy


A fish and chip shop worker was attacked by a meat cleaver in a Bradford armed robbery.

A 30-year-old employee left the West Park Fisheries, Thornton Road, premises at 7pm on Friday, October 3, from a rear door when he was targeted by three men, police reported.

Robbers threated the victim with what is thought to have been a meat cleaver and an amount of cash was taken by armed men who assaulted the victim.

The man suffered cuts to his arm and bruising to his face.

West Yorkshire police are now appealing for witnesses to help trace the men of which one suspect is described as an Asian male of Pakistan or Indian descent, aged around 25 and around 5ft 11 in height - described as medium to stocky build and wearing grey tracksuit bottoms and a black hooded top with a white scarf covering the lower part of his face.

The second male is reportedly Asian and in his mid-twenties and the third suspect is believed to be Asian and around 6ft in height.

It is possible there was a fourth male suspect involved in the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Bradford CID on 101.
