Armed Robbers Escape With 19,000 In City

Robbers armed with baseball bats attacked a Securicor guard before making off with 19,000 outside a Coventry supermarket yesterday.

He was set upon from behind outside Morrison in Skipworth Road, Binley at 6.10pm.

The offenders, who were both wearing balaclavas, grabbed the money box he was carrying and go made off in a red VW Golf registration F944VVM.

The car was later found abandoned with the money in Willowherb Close, Binley.

The offenders had driven over the cashbox to try and break it open, and had activated the dye inside the container.

This made the money useless, and the crooks fled the scene.

Police are looking for any witnesses, particularly anyone who saw the attackers fleeing the car.

Securicor have offered a 5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the offenders.

Anyone with information should call 024 7653 9040.
