Hundreds of pounds was stolen from the Co-op store in Sawtry in an armed robbery on Saturday – the latest in a series of similar attacks in recent weeks.
Police were called shortly before 10pm on Saturday following reports that two masked men had entered the shop, in Glatton Road, and demanded cash.
According to officers, the duo made off with about £200.
The news comes following a recent spate of robberies in Huntingdonshire in the last month, including at shops in St Ives, St Neots, Brampton, and Godmanchester.
A spokesman for Cambridgeshire police said: “It’s possible that this is part of an on-going series of armed robberies in Huntingdonshire.”
