Two men armed with a hand gun robbed a Rugby shop last night (Thursday).

The men entered Kings Store in Cambridge Street just after 7.30pm.

One, who was carrying a hand gun, stood by the door and stopped a customer entering the store.

The other punched a staff member in the face and stole cash from the till and a quantity of cigarettes from under the till.

The offenders, who were wearing quilted jackets and balaclavas, left the store and turned left towards Abbey Street and the station.

A police search was conducted last night and patrols continue today.

Officers would like to hear from anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity in the area last night, or has any information which would help to identify the offenders.

Call Warwickshire Police on 101 quoting incident 289 of February 19.
