Sussex Police have confirmed that two men who allegedly threatened staff at a petrol station in East Sussex with an axe, stole £1,000 worth of cigarettes and cash from the till.
The member of staff was on his own and was verbally threatened but fortunately not physically injured. Detectives are in the process of viewing CCTV and continuing with forensic examinations. I would appeal to anyone who witnessed this robbery or has any information that could help us with our enquiries to please come forward. Your call will be dealt with in the utmost confidence.
