TWO thugs raided a Merseyside betting shop and threatened staff with crowbars.
The men, both in their 20s, escaped with cash from Ladbrokes, in New Ferry.
A spokesman for Merseyside police said: “Shortly after 7.45pm, staff at Ladbrokes, in Bebington Road, reported two offenders entered, threatened staff and stole cash.
“Patrols found a lone member of staff and one customer shaken but uninjured.”
It is thought the robbers fled on foot in the direction of Port Sunlight following the robbery on Monday.
The first was around 5ft 5ins and of medium build. He was wearing a black coat with the hood up.
The second was about 6ft and of a medium build. He was wearing a dark top with a white stripe across the chest.
