No one was injured in an armed hold-up that took place in Birkirkara on Friday but the robber fled with a wad of cash.

The case took place at a lotto shop in Triq Dun Filippu at around 9:45am, the police said.

The assailant, wearing a mask and armed with a knife, ordered the cashier – a 61-year-old woman from Birkirkara – to hand over the cash. He then fled the scene. The amount of cash stolen was not disclosed.


The police are searching for the robber. Investigations are ongoing.
