Staff Struggle With Masked Raiders

Two masked raiders struggled with shop staff at a Bulkington convenience store before fleeing with money from the till.

Both raiders in the attack on the Spa store in Leicester Street, Bulkington were wearing crash helmets when the raid took place at 10.30pm.

Two hours earlier they had pulled up outside the shop on a motorbike, bought something, and left.

Then when they returned, the two male shop staff were standing by the counter talking to two customers.

One of the men started shouting and swinging his arms around.

He was pushed towards the door by one of the staff members, but managed to force his way back.

The second offender started kicking at a wooden half-door that led to the area behind the counter.

This caused the till to pop open. The attacker began taking cash out but one of the staff members tried to close his fingers in the till, and was smashed around the face.

The pair then fled on a white Honda motorcycle with 80 cash.

The taller attacker, who was shouting, is 6ft and was wearing a black full-face helmet. He is slim and was wearing black leathers and white gloves.

His accomplice is 5ft 7in, thin and was wearing a black motorcycle helmet and leathers.

Witnesses should call police on 01926 415000..
