Gloucester knifeman in £10,000 getaway
A Gloucester bar owner lost £10,000 at the hands of a knife-wielding thief yesterday.
Justin Hudson, owner of Butlers, in Eastgate Street, was walking to the bank with two staff members.
A hoodied man lept out from a bus stop and demanded the money.
Mr Hudson was left with a fractured jaw during the incident which happened at around 3pm.
