Shop staff threatened with crowbars during robbery

Two workers at a shop in Wool in Dorset have been threatened with crowbars during an armed robbery.

It happened at around 8pm last night at the Spar Shop on High Street.

It was reported that three offenders entered the store via the rear door and threatened two members of staff with crowbars. They took a quantity of cash before making off. The victims were not injured in the incident.

The offenders were wearing dark clothing and had their faces covered.

"This was a terrifying ordeal for the two members of staff who were in the shop at the time and I am appealing to anyone who witnessed the incident or saw three men acting suspiciously in the area at the time of the incident to contact me."

– Detective Sergeant Nicky Jenkins, of Weymouth CID
