Sawn-off Shotguns Brandished In Club Raid

Masked robbers threatened a Coventry rugby club stewardess with sawn-off shotgun before raiding the till and safe.

They appeared as the 55-year-old woman was locking up at the Coventrians RFC in Yelverton Road, Radford between 6.15pm and 6.30pm.

The men produced shotguns and brandished them at the woman. They forced her back into the building and stole a total of 800.

The men, who are both white, and wore dark clothing and balaclavas, escaped in a white Rover 214 which was parked outside the club.

It was later found abandoned nearby. Witnesses, or people who saw anyone acting suspiciously before the attack, should call police on 024 7653 9020.
