AN EMPLOYEE was punched in the face by robbers who raided a pizza takeaway in Goring.
Police launched an appeal for witnesses today (October 12) after the incident on October 4.
A 27-year-old Worthing man was arrested on suspicion of robbery and has been bailed until November 30 while investigations continue, said the force.
“At around 9.30pm on Sunday, October 4, three men came into the Domino’s Pizza on Goring Road and demanded money,” said a spokesman.
“They took a couple of hundred pounds and ran out of the shop. A worker, who was in the office at the time, tried to stop them and was punched in the face. She suffered minor injuries and was checked over at hospital.”
Detective Constable Owen Watkins said: “Thankfully the victim was not seriously hurt but she was extremely upset by the ordeal. We are appealing to anyone who was in the area on Sunday evening who might have seen anything to get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org quoting serial 1442 of October 4.”
