A MAN held up staff at knifepoint a fast-food restaurant at 3am, demanding they hand over cash from the till.

Wiltshire Police are appealing for witnesses following the knifepoint robbery in a McDonald's restaurant on Great Western Way in the early hours of this morning.

A man entered the restaurant just after 3am and walked behind the counter brandishing a knife before demanding money from the till.

Once the till was open, the suspect took a handful of notes before exiting the restaurant.

The male is described as white, in his late twenties to early thirties, wearing a white baseball cap with a gold emblem, a black Superdry jacket, fawn/yellow trousers and blue and white trainers.

Police have released CCTV stills of a man officers would like to speak to in connection with this incident.

If you know who the man is or witnessed any of the incident, contact Wiltshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
