LOOK: Police hunt duo after Coventry pizza shop attack

Coventry Editorial 19th Jul, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

POLICE are appealing for information after a pizza shop owner was assaulted by two customers.

The men walked into Oregano Pizza on Walsgrave Road in Stoke at 7pm on June 17 and ordered food but started arguing with the staff over their order.

One man then reached over the counter and snatched three phones belonging to members of staff.

The owner tried to stop him from leaving the shop but was punched multiple times and fell backwards onto a chair, leaving him with minor injuries.

The men ran away and smashed the window by throwing one of the stolen phones at it.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Paul Deeley at Willenhall police station by emailing contactus@west-midlands.pnn.police.uk or by calling 101 and citing the crime number 20CV/115717Y/16.

Alternatively, information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
