[02 MAR 01] CRIMES, FIRES & ACCIDENTS
Post Office Attacked By Masked Men

Robbers smashed their way through a security screen in a post office before escaping with a large sum of cash yesterday afternoon.

Two men appeared at the Wood Street post office in Rugby at 3.30pm and used a large concrete block to shatter the protective screen shielding staff.

They then reached over and removed quantity of cash and escaped.

The female sub-postmistress and shop assistant were said to be extremely shocked by the incident, but were not hurt during the attack.

Both men wore balaclavas and dark, or grey clothing. One is said to be 5ft 6ins, his accomplice slightly shorter.

A silver Mitsubishi estate car was later found abandoned in Clifton Road. It is thought that this was used as the escape vehicle.

Anyone who saw anything should contact DC John Busby or WDC Jenny Malhoutra on 01788 541111.
