Police have released terrifying CCTV footage showing a knife-brandishing, masked robber dressed as Santa Claus raiding a fast food restaurant.
At about 10.30pm on Saturday, a man climbed in through the drive-through window at KFC in Nottingham Road, Alfreton.
He produced a knife, threatened staff and demanded money before leaving with cash.
A Derbyshire police spokesman said: “The robber is described as being about 5ft 10in tall and stocky. He wore a red hat, red trousers and a red jacket over a black top. He had his face covered with what appears to be black tights or stockings.
“Despite earlier speculation on social media, police are unable to identify the robber’s ethnicity.”
Anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting crime reference number 54853/15, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
