Pub Staff Threatened By Armed Raiders

Masked men with guns forced their way into a Coventry pub and stole thousands of pounds last night.

They are believed to have got into The Nugget in Hollyfast Road, Coundon through a skylight at midnight.

Four attackers, all of whom concealed their faces with scarves and balaclavas, threatened the 28-year old licensee and three of her staff.

Two of the men pointed hand guns at them, and made them go into the pubís office.

They made the licensee open the safe and took £2,000.

The men then told the staff to lie on the floor and escaped. They are believed to have left by a side entrance that led to the car park at the front of the pub.

No-one was hurt during the raid, but the staff were left shocked by the ordeal.

All the men are believed to be in their early 20s. One of them had distinctive large brown eyes.

Witnesses should call detectives at Little Park Street police station on 024 7653 9082.
