Ghostly Attacker Points Gun At Shop Staff

A man with a ghostly appearance proved to be in more than fancy dress when he threatened shop staff with a gun.

The man in a ghost mask, with slits cut out for the eyes, pointed a weapon between six and eight inches long at the staff in Quick Buy in Rugby Road, Leamington.

The attack was launched at 5.40pm on 31 December. The man walked into the shop and pointed the hand gun at the male manager and his female assistant.

He shouted threats at them and demanded money. When the manager challenged the offender he ran off empty-handed.

Police are appealing for help in tracking the man. They are particularly keen to hear from anyone who inside the shop or near it during the attack, and for anyone who saw in which direction the man ran.

He is of medium build, in his late 20s and about 5ft 6ins. Anyone with information should call DC Chishty on 01926 415000.
