A pregnant 24-year-old salesgirl from Birkirkara had the fright of her life this evening when a man wearing a hoodie and brandishing a knife entered the shop she was working in and asked for cash.

The hold-up took place at the Early Learning Centre in St Paul Street, Rabat at 6.30pm.

The thief is believed to have escaped with a small amount of money.

An inquiry is being held.
