Man Threatening Staff in William Hill Betting Shop

The police department in Luton are seeking public help in a case where a man walked into the William Hill betting store in Dunstable Road, Luton and threatened the staff. The man was wearing a red and grey track suit top and a drill which the police believes was a tool towards threatening the staff.

“An Audi A3 car was later found parked in Connaught Road at the junction of Beverley Road and we believe this vehicle is also connected to this incident. I would urge residents to check their bins and gardens. Anyone who finds a top matching this description, a discarded drill or anyone who saw the A3 being left in Connaught Road should contact the police immediately.” Dave Elias, Detective Constable told to the local press.


It is becoming more and more common that betting shops are subject to threats and armed robberies, many of those are from bettors who feel cheated out of their funds. The subject is taking up more and more space in the UK, as it seems that gambling addiction has become a public health problem.


Should you have any idea about who the man might be, then you are more than welcome to contact DC Elias in Luton Police Station on: 01582 394376 or Bedfordshire Police on 101. All calls will be handled in confidentiality.
