London, May 10 (IANS) A masked man - dressed in a bandana and a hooded jacket - robbed a shop in Britain while holding a cup of black coffee in his right hand.

The man told the sales assistant at the Oasis News store in Manchester to empty the stock of cigarettes into a bin bag, and also stole cash during the raid before walking out, the Telegraph reported.

The man had an accomplice who did not cover his face. Security cameras recorded the crime at 10.45 a.m. Wednesday.

Shop assistant Mubin Najib said despite the casual nature of the men, he felt threatened.

“I noticed the guy carrying a cup of coffee but I was more worried about the way he was acting. I actually thought he had a knife with him and he making threats saying: ‘Don’t move or tell anyone otherwise we will come back and kill you’,” he said.

The assistant quit his job shortly afterwards.
