At around 6.30pm, a man entered Cocoon beauty salon in Reading Road before threatening members of staff with a knife. He took cash before leaving the shop.

At around 9pm on the same evening, a man threatened a female member of staff at the Coral bookmaker in the same road.

The man left with a quantity of cash. No-one was injured in either incident.

Hampshire Constabulary believe the two robberies are linked, and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward by calling Aldershot CID via 101.
