Robbery At Burger King

Robbers struck at a Coventry Burger King yesterday evening.

The incident happened between 10.10pm and 10.28pm at the fast food outlet on the Cross Point industrial estate.

Two robbers wearing balaclavas entered the rear yard of the restaurant after it had closed.

They tied the wrists of two staff members with some electric cable and while one of the offenders stayed with them the other entered the restaurant itself and told the manager to open the safe.

The robber then stole a substantial quantity of cash and put it into a rucksack. The manager and two staff members were then put into a storeroom and all three had their wrists and ankles bound.

The Burger King staff however managed to free themselves and raised the alarm after the offenders had left.

Both offenders are described as white men of large build and aged between 20 and 30.

One is 6ft tall and wearing dark shoes, trousers and sweatshirt, a green balaclava, silver wristwatch, black gloves and dark baseball cap.

The second was wearing a blue balaclava, white cap, dark clothing and white trainers.

Anyone with information should contact police at Stoney Stanton Road on 024 7653 9020.
