Knife-weilding robber apologised after stealing Iphones from shop
A KNIFE-weilding robber stole thousands of pounds worth of Iphones during a broad daylight raid on a shop...before apologising to staff.
The thug, who covered part of his face with a scarf, entered the Carphone Warehouse in High Street, Southend, at 4pm on Friday before producing a large kitchen knife and demanding the mobile phones.
Members of staff handed over a number of Apple Iphone 5 mobile phones valued at thousands of pounds.
The man then fled the store, but bizarrley apologised for his actions while leaving.
Investigating officer Dc Bob Evans said: "This man had a total disregard for not only the two members of staff who were in the shop at the time but for any members of the public who could have entered the shop at the time of the robbery.”
