Armed robbers strike at Rugby convenience store

Rugby Editorial 20th Feb, 2015 Updated: 27th Oct, 2016

ROBBERS threatened shoppers with a gun during a theft at a Cambridge Street store last night (Thursday February 19).

Two men entered Kings Store shortly after 7.30pm.

One, who was carrying a hand gun, stood by the door and stopped a customer entering the store.

The other punched a staff member in the face and stole cash and cigarettes from behind the counter.

The robbers, who were wearing quilted jackets and balaclavas, left the store and turned left towards Abbey Street and the train station.

Officers would like to hear from anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity in the area, or who can help to identify the offenders. Call Warwickshire Police on 101 quoting incident 289 of February 19.
