Appeal After Armed Robberies At Newsagents

Two newsagents were robbed in Milton Keynes yesterday evening (Sunday July 3rd).

Staff at Shenley News, Benbow Court, Shenley Church End, were shutting the store, at five to seven, when two men walked under the shutters saying they wanted to buy something.

After purchasing a bottle of cola, one of the men walked behind the till and showed staff a knife, demanding they open the till. They stole about £4 before leaving the shop.

In the second robbery, it is thought the same two white men entered Great Holm Stores in Highgrove Hill, Great Holm, at about 7.10pm. They asked for cigarettes and as the assistant handed them over, they both pulled out knives, threatened him, and snatched the till tray.

The two men involved are both white. There is no other description available.

Det Con Matthew Hemming, investigating the incidents, said: "Although no-one was hurt in the robberies, the staff members were left shaken and upset. At this stage we believe these two robberies are linked and are keen to trace the people responsible."
