Police are appealing for information following an armed robbery at a post office in Leeds.

At 10.50am on Monday 10 June, officers were called to the incident at the post office in Halton Moor Avenue.

Three masked males had broken into the premises through the floor of the flat above.

They threatened staff with knives and stole a substantial amount of cash.

They left the scene in a silver Ford Fiesta bearing the false registration SP14KXT.

No injuries were reported.

Detective Inspector Amanda Wimbles, of Leeds District CID, said: “No-one was injured but staff were left badly shaken after being threatened by these men who had burst in through the ceiling.

“We believe the suspects will have been preparing their way in from the flat above for some time prior to the robbery, and we would like to hear from anyone who has witnessed anything suspicious in the hours leading up to incident.

“We would also like to hear from anyone who has seen the silver Ford Fiesta abandoned anywhere since the incident.”
