Post Office Robbed At Gun Point

A sub-postmistress was bound and hit unconscious by armed robbers who raided her safe yesterday.

The woman, in her mid-30s, was alone in the rear of the post office in Long Street, Dordon, when she was approached by two men at 5.40pm.

Both were wearing balaclavas or ski-masks and baseball caps.

They pointed a hand gun at her and hit her on the head. They bound her and forced her at gun point to hand over the keys to the safe.

She was then knocked unconscious. When she came round the men had gone and she managed to raise the alarm with neighbours, who freed her.

She was treated at the George Eliot Hospital and was later released.

Post office bosses were today trying to work out what had been taken by the men. The man with the gun is either mixed race or Asian, about 6ft and stocky build.

He was wearing a dark coloured woollen jumper and spoke with a gruff voice.

His accomplice is smaller, wore a jumper and a dark grey hooded top. Witnesses should contact Bedworth CID on 01926 415000.
