OFFICERS in Rotherham have released a CCTV image of two men they want to speak to in connection with an armed robbery at Kimberworth post office on Church Street at the weekend.

A police spokesperson said: “It is reported that at about 11.50am on Sunday, March 20, two men entered the premises wearing dark clothing and some form of covering on their faces. 

“One presented a knife to the shop assistant working at the time, while the other walked around the back of the counter to take the till.

“The men then fled with the till, containing a quantity of cash, possibly down an alleyway into some fields.

“Enquiries are ongoing but officers are keen to identify the men in the image as they may be able to assist with enquiries.

“If anyone has any information which can assist officers, was in the area at the time and saw or heard anything suspicious, or who has CCTV which may have caught either the moments before or after the incident, they are asked to contact police on 101 quoting incident number 397 of 20 March.
