A MASKED THUG threat­ened staff at a nurs­ery min­utes be­fore the chil­dren ar­rived.

Na­ture’s Nurs­ery, on St Philip’s Drive, Roy­ton , was raided shortly be­fore 7.30am last Thurs­day.

After ring­ing the door­bell the masked man forced his way in and de­manded cash from a fe­male worker.

He swiped a quan­tity of money from the petty cash tin be­fore es­cap­ing.

There were no chil­dren inside the build­ing at the time, although they be­gan ar­riv­ing just min­utes later.

The staff mem­ber was said to be badly shaken by her or­deal.

The of­fender was wear­ing dark cloth­ing and a scarf which he used to cover his face.

Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for the pub­lic’s help in trac­ing the cul­prit.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call po­lice on 101 or Crimestop­pers, anony­mously, on 0800 111 555.
