A raid on a credit union in Doncaster this week is being linked with a robbery in Goldthorpe.

Detectives say the raid at the South Yorkshire Credit Union at Waterdale, Doncaster, may be connected to a raid on the same credit union’s premises on Barnsley Road, on July 17, as a ‘copy cat’.

The raiders who held up the Doncaster site used a stun gun, while the robbers who targeted the Goldthorpe organisation where carrying a knife and a baseball when they stole cash.

Police are appealing for anyone with information about the Goldthorpe raid to come forward.

They can contact South Yorkshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 377 of Tuesday 17 July.
