Moorgate hold up men sought by police

Police are appealing for witnesses following an attempted robbery of a Lancaster newsagent by two men late last month, one brandishing a meat cleaver.

The incident happened at Moorgate Shop, Lancaster on Tuesday 27th November at around 9.00pm. Two men, wearing gloves and balaclavas entered the store. One remained at the entrance brandishing a meat clever shouting "Give me your money", while the other man approached the till area looking for the money.

The shop assistant managed to press the emergency alarm button and the offenders left the scene.

Detective Constable Hana Alayli-Moore said, “I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time and witnessed what happened or who perhaps saw the two offenders making off from the scene to come forward and contact the police.”

That's terrible. A meat cleaver sounds very frightening. I hope they catch the robbers soon.
