A CHINESE takeaway’s takings were stolen by masked raiders in a robbery in Hatfield.
Police are appealing for witnesses and information after the outlet’s owner was attacked in the early hours of Saturday.
The incident happened at about 12.10am in Grove Lea.
The victim, who owns the Happy Valley Takeaway, in Hilltop shopping parade, had locked up for the night and was walking to his car with the day’s takings when he was assailed by a man and a woman.
The woman pushed him to the floor and the man demanded he hand over the cash before taking the bag with the takings from him.
