STAFF at the Co-Op in Hagley were threatened at knifepoint during a robbery at the store on Tuesday (October 30).

Two white men, who had their faces covered, burst into the shop at around 7.25pm - one was brandishing a knife and the other a screwdriver.

After threatening the employees to open the safe and forcing them to handover a quantity of cash, they escaped in a black Nissan. The car, which headed towards Stourbridge, was stolen from Ettingshall Park, Wolverhampton, earlier that evening.

Det Con Clare Pearson from West Mercia Police said although no one was injured, the staff were extremely shaken.

Anyone with any information should call Bromsgrove CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
