Women Terrified As Petrol Station Held Up

Two Coventry petrol station attendants were bundled into a stock room as youths armed with a gun stole cash.

The two women were preparing to close Cromwell Garage in Torrington Avenue, Tile Hill at 7pm yesterday when they were set upon.

Two white youths, aged about 18 and wearing dark clothing, walked into the building and forced the teenager and the 41-year-old members of staff into a stock room.

Brandishing a dark hand gun, they then made them open a cash box, and made off with about £200.

The women were left severely shaken and frightened by the incident, but were not injured.

PC Ian McArthur, who is hunting the robbers, said:

“The employees were not injured but they were terrified n they were left very upset.

“We believe a lest one motorist filled up as the petrol station was about to close and I would like to here from any witnesses as they may have valuable information would could help us to catch these offenders.”

Anyone who can help should call 024 7653 9010.
