Robbery at newsagent

Post by El Cid » 12 Sep 2019 11:47

I heard today that the small newsagent opposite The Greyhound was robbed at around 5 pm yesterday. A guy (black with a beard and wearing a hood with a baseball cap underneath it), who claimed to have a knife, grabbed money from the till and ran off.

Yes, this is true, the owner told me this morning. He got away with around £200

As a regular if not necessarily frequent customer of the newsagent, I asked today if there had been any news on catching the robber. Seemingly, the robber attempted to rob another local shop a couple of days later but was hit at the back of the head during the incident, an injury from which he later died. Although this is hearsay, assuming true, much distress all round.

Edit PS: The initial newsagent was told he'd get a visit from the police within 48 hours to take details. This 48 hr thing was mentioned just now in another thread. What's the good of turning up after 2 days?
