The wave of attacks on shops in an small part of Coventry has continued, with a man armed with a knife holding up a petrol station.

The attack happened at the BP station in Butts in Earlsdon at 6am yesterday.

A man armed with an eight-inch knife went into the shop, and threatened the male cashier, who locked himself in an office.

The attacker took more than 100 from the till and left through the fire exit.

He was wearing a dark Parka jacket, jeans and had a black scarf across the lower part of his face.

The attack follows a raid the day before at Snappy Tomato Pizza in Spon End, a hold-up at an off-licence in Providence Street, a street robbery at gun point.

There have also been two till snatches, at the One-Stop Convenience Store and the Co-op in Earlsdon Street, and a raid with a knife at Victoria Wine in Albany Road.
