Police hunting Halloween mask shop raiders issue CCTV pictures
POLICE hunting for Halloween-mask wearing raiders who assaulted two young shop workers in a robbery have released CCTV images of the incident.
Officers are appealing for anybody with information about the incident in Waun Wen, Swansea, to come forward.
During the robbery one of the suspects left a wooden rolling pin — which had been used to threaten the staff — at the scene.
South Wales Police detective inspector Darren George of Swansea CID said: “An investigation into the robbery is continuing and we are appealing to the public to help us identify the suspects shown in the CCTV pictures.
“If anyone knows their identity or recognises them from the pictures then please contact the police.”
The raid on the Carmarthen Road shop happened around 10.45pm on Saturday, when three men wearing masks entered the rear of the store and assaulted two members of staff before making off with cash and a Samsung mobile phone.
Detectives say a dark coloured Ford Focus was seen to drive off from the area and head along Carmarthen Road in the direction of Cwmbwrla.
