Armed Robbers Strike At Club

A steward and a barman were forced into a cellar by armed robbers who struck at a club last night.

The masked men walked into the Bulkington Working Menís Club in Chequer Street, Bulkington through the front door at 11.45pm.

They confronted the barman and steward who were preparing to lock up and one of the men brandished what appeared to be a pistol at the two men.

The robbers demanded the keys to the safe and forced the two victims into the cellar, where they told them to lie on the floor.

They then took a quantity of cash from the safe before shutting the cellar door and escaping.

The barman and steward managed to force their way out and raised the alarm at 12.05am.

Both attackers were white and spoke with local accents. The man with the gun is 5ft 10ins, well-built and wore a black ski-mask and a dark suit.

His accomplice is the same height but more skinny, had a fawn coloured ski-mask, dark bomber jacket and dark trousers.

Witnesses should contact Bedworth CID on 01926 415000 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
