Robbers Hit Coventry Kwiksave

A worker at a Coventry branch of Kwiksave was forced at gunpoint to return to his store to open it for robbers who stole 5,000 of goods.

The man had shut the shop in Quorn Way, Ernesford Grange, with colleagues at 8.30pm on Friday.

The man separated from his colleagues and was approached by a man in Edward Bailey Close.

As he got close the man produced a gun from under his jacket, and forced the shop worker to get into an old-style blue Ford Sierra, where another man was waiting.

They demanded the keys to shop, but the man did not have them. They then forced him to call the shop manager and arrange to meet him at the store.

When they got in they stole 5,000 of Vodafone and Siemens mobile phones, phone cards and cigarettes.

A police spokesman said:

"This was a terrifying experience for the two men and we are anxious to contact any witnesses."

People with information should call 024 7653 9040.
