 Armed Robbery at Murco Petrol Station, Deanshanger

POLICE officers in the south of the county are appealing for information about a robbery in Deanshanger.

The incident took place at about 9pm on Monday 23 February at the Murco Petrol Station on the A422.

As the 25-year-old male victim was stocking the shelves, an offender came into them shop and threatened him with what police believe was a hand gun.

As this was going on another offender stood at the door and another waited outside.

The cashier then gave the offender cash and cigarettes but was unhurt in the incident.

The offenders then made off on foot towards Deanshanger.

The male who threatened the cashier was wearing a balaclava, was about 5ft tall, of large build, white and aged between 15 and 18.

The second offender was also white, of skinny build and around the same age.

DC Kirsty Preston said: "We are working extremely hard to track down the offenders and will continue to do so.

"This sort of incident is very rare in this part of the county and we want anyone with any information to contact us as soon as possible."

Witnesses to this incident, or anyone with information, should call Northamptonshire police on 08453 700700 - alternatively, information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
