Armed Robbery At Bulkington Store

Armed robbers threatened a shopkeeper with a gun and hit him on the head several times as they raided a store in Bulkington.

The attacker walked into Weston Lane Stores at 9.40pm and demanded cash from the till.

They hit the storekeeper, Thomas Robinson, aged 49, on the head several times and escaped with some money.

Mr Robinson received several head wounds and had to be treated for his injuries in hospital, where he needed stitches.

The men then ran off, and are believed to have escaped on foot.

The man with the gun, described as a short and stubby weapon with a silver barrel, is white, of stocky build, and about 35.

He was wearing a thick beige woolly jumper, had brown hair and was unshaven.

His accomplice is of stocky build, had a black tight-fitting jacket, and had a light coloured mask, possibly a ski mask.

Police have appealed to anyone who saw anything to contact them on 01926 415000.
