Armed raiders rob store

THREE masked robbers, carrying baseball bats, robbed an Awsworth supermarket as a staff member was opening up, police have said.

A 21-year-old shop worker was opening at the Nisa store in The Lane at about 6.45am on Monday December 5 when he was approached by three black men wearing face coverings.

The employee, who was uninjured, was ordered in to the back of the shop while the robbers stole cigarettes and cash.

All three were wearing dark clothing and thought to be aged between 25 and 30.

Two were believed to have been carrying bats, one was smaller than the other. They may have left the scene in a vehicle.

Anyone who saw anything suspicious should call Beeston CID on 101 ext 812 5636.
