POLICE investigating a gun raid on a Halifax bookie’s are making a plea to the public to help find the culprit.

Detectives say the area around Coral bookmaker’s on King Cross Road in King Cross, pictured, would have been busy when the robber attacked at 4.20pm on Wednesday.

Armed with what is believed to be a handgun, he took cash before fleeing towards Fenton Road.

Detective Inspector Gary Stephenson, from Calderdale CID, said: “This would have been a busy street and a busy area. Someone must have seen someone hanging around before this happened.

“We believe the answer to who did this lies in the community.”

The suspect is described as an Asian man, in his late teens or early 20s. Anyone with information call Calderdale CID on 0845 6060606.
