[21 MAR 01] CRIMES, FIRES & ACCIDENTS
Gun Threat At Coventry Post Office

A Coventry postmaster and his wife found themselves looking down the barrel of a gun yesterday when an offender demanded cash from them.

The attacker went into the Radford Post Office in Radford Road at 10.15am yesterday. No other customers were in the shop at the time, and he went up to the counter.

He raised his arm at the couple behind the glass screen and pointed what appeared to be a concealed gun at them.

The attacker demanded money, but the postmaster sounded the security alarm before any cash was handed over, and the man fled.

He is white, aged between 25 and 30, 5ft 8ins, stocky build, short mousy hair and had a scarf with large green and black checks over the bottom of his face.

He wore a beige blouson-style jacket and jeans.

The couple were not injured but were extremely shaken by the ordeal.

Witnesses should call detectives on 024 7653 9010.
