Axe wielding robbers take thousands from pawn shop

Two robbers threatened staff at a Bilston pawn shop with an axe and a suspected stun gun before taking thousands of pounds worth of jewellery and cash.

The two masked offenders entered the shop at around 12.55pm yesterday (16 October).

One of the staff members suffered a minor cut to the hand during the raid before the robbers escaped in a blue or grey BMW and were last seen heading towards the Black Country Route.

Detectives are reviewing CCTV footage and carrying out forensic examinations of the scene.
