Robbers armed with cleaver rob Co-op shop

POLICE want help in identifying two robbers - one armed with a meat cleaver - who robbed a Co-op shop.

The pair entered the convenience store in Two Mile Hill Road at 6.11am on December 2.

After threatening the two women working at the store with the knife they demanded cash from the tills before running off in the direction of Bell Hill Road.



Police today released CCTV footage of the men and investigator Emily Barber said: “This was a terrifying incident for the staff working in the store.
"Thankfully, nobody was injured but understandably staff were left shaken by what happened.
"We are hoping that by releasing this CCTV footage people will remember seeing these men in the area and be able to help us with our ongoing investigation.”
The armed man was around 5ft 7in tall and stocky. He was wearing a dark blue boiler suit, grey gloves, a black balaclava or snood and a black beanie hat.
The second robber was described as 5ft 10in tall and thin. He was wearing grey jogging trousers, dark waterproof jacket, a black balaclava, snood or scarf and black gloves, with a white strip across the top. He also had a black rucksack, with a white patch and dark green lettering.
Both were said to be white and with Bristolian accents.
Anyone with information should call 101 and quote crime reference number 5219 277 995.
